Re: Did it run in parallel?

Your job is running in serial mode.
Please read
http://classic.chem.msu.su/gran/gamess/linux_mpich.html and
http://classic.chem.msu.su/gran/gamess/comm_line.html
if you want to run in parallel.
You need to create a procgrop file (containing the string local 7 if you want to use 8 local cpus).
In addition the number of working dirs is to be the same ad the number of cpus (or use -t option).
