MD_OPENMP is a FORTRAN77 program which carries out a molecular dynamics simulation, using OpenMP for parallel execution.
On an Apple PowerPC G5 with two processors, the following results were observed for 400 steps with 1000 particles:
Threads | Time |
---|---|
1 | 259.212 secconds |
2 | 134.953 seconds |
4 | 141.465 seconds |
In the BASH shell, the program could be run with 2 threads using the commands:
export OMP_NUM_THREADS=2 ./md_openmp
