Parallel Jobs

  I just tried, for the first time, submitting 10 minimization jobs from the same bash submit script. Usually, using the CUDA NAMD version with 4 GPUs, an individual minimization job finishes in 15-20 seconds. If I try submitting 10 minimization jobs on 10 nodes, with 24 cpus per node, 64 GB per node, and 4 GPUs per node, it takes about 2 minutes to finish the minimization jobs. It seems that each job is not getting their own node and set of GPUs. How does NAMD handle parallel jobs like this?
