GROMACS supports all the usual algorithms you expect from a modern molecular dynamics implementation, check the online reference or manual for detailsbut there are also quite a few features that make it stand out from the competition.

Much more detailed informations about Gromacs is available at the About Gromacs Website. The GROMACS package in its entirety may be copied, modified or distributed according to the conditions described in the documentation see link below. However, in the interests of clarity and completeness, maual individual parts of GROMACS that can be used under their respective licenses are also noted here, too.

Here, we got the “default” version 5. The module will try to load modules it needs to function e. If loading the module fails, check if you have already loaded one of those modules, but not in the version needed for Gromacs. If you wish to load a specific older version if availableyou can do so using e.

Example groomacs version 5. All binaries are compiled including MPI. Gridcount is an analysis tool for Gromacs that creates 3D grmacs densities from molecular dynamics trajectories. Typically, this is used to look at the density of water or ions near proteins or in channels and pores.


This version is known to be more stable than recent MKL-versions of Gromacs. If you get problems with a big amount of calculations with newer versions, try this one! Increase the number of workers starting with 1, 2, 4 and 8 cores and check for a reasonable speedup. If the speedup is not sufficient, it is better to run several smaller jobs with reasonable speedup side by side.

Please do not forget to adjust the memory specification when changing the number of workers. Our Gromacs version is shared-memory parallel only. Therefore only one-node jobs make any sense. It requires a lot of experience to choose the right 4.53 value. Monitoring a job interactively might help to estimate the memory consumption. Requesting MB more than required is ok. Rule of thumb in case manul serial AND shared memory parallel jobs: The required memory might janual depend on the number of workers e.

The bwForCluster default memory stack size 10M is too low for Gromacs. So the stack limit is set to M, a value suitable for most Gromacs jobs. Typical Gromacs stack requirements are between M and M. Usually there is no need to change the script default value of M.

Nevertheless M might be still too low for some Gromacs jobs. So increasing the value further to M might be required then.

For memory stack specification see “ulimit -s” command below in this script. Searching an appropriate scratch size can be difficult. One strategy is to calculate smaller jobs and extrapolate to larger jobs or one can run a job for some time in the foreground and monitor the disk usage.


It requires experience with the scientific program to set this value. Currently the maximal value is around 1. Job run time specified by time of real clock at wall 1: The time specification is independend of the number of parallel workers.

Again it requires experience to set this value appropriately.

It might nanual to run the job interactivly for some time and to monitor the convergence. Furthermore it might be possible to extrapolate the run time by looking at smaller test jobs.

Versions 4.5.x

Shorter jobs might get higher priorities. Make sure that the number of workers specified in the Gromacs input file mannual. In this case one should monitor an interactive Gromacs job to figure out the actual memory requirement.

Make sure that the memory specification in your Gromacs input file e. Otherwise Gromacs will write strange error messages. Typical unix commands for that are: Monitoring running jobs If you want to monitor the program running e.
