I am not a replica exchange expert, but I am presuming the master nodes
might be writing to disk? Could it be that if you have the former master
arrangement, you are writing to disk for some of the copies over an nfs
share? This can be really bad, especially if the nfs share is either
heavily loaded, or uses the same interconnect as mpi. I am just guessing
here, as this is sander, and replica exchange, neither of which I do all
that much with...
