Similar question have been asked in the past. Maybe search the mailing list archive. Away from that, the NAMD folks do offer benchmark systems of various size for download, which are a good point to start.


BTW. as I pointed out in earlier posts, I highly doubt that anybody without MD experience can carry out reliable benchmarks.

Betreff: namd-l: Testing NAMD scalability


Dear all,

I'm not a NAMD user but I nned to test its scalability on our facility.
Can someone tell me how to generate different size of the same system?
Can I take any of those case studies <> and scale them?
Thank you.
