Did you check the % of utilization of your GPU card with the commands
"nvidia-smi -q -g 2 -d UTILIZATION -l" or "nvidia-smi dmon -s u" ?
Check also the gpu card driver, did you install the right one ?
If you are using several GPU cards, you should specify also the argument
devices, as follow:
namd2 +idlepoll +p<nbprocess> +devices <num of gpu card, ...> <config
file>. Personally, I do not use the command charmrun, so try without.
