Namd benchmark problem

Dear Namd users,

        I've installed NAMD on a Linux HPC cluster by both ways (1)
Downloading binaries (2) By compiling the source with Open MPI.

To test the scaling of Namd, I downloaded the standard benchmark apoa1 from
NAMD website. After doing the benchmark I found that its taking very little
time 3-4 minutes to complete(with 4 cores), but on the website its shown its
taking 4days to complete.

May I know what mistake am doing here?

On the website, there is no info provided about how to do the benchmark.
