ADL: Running Vina on HPC Cluster

As I know Vina uses a shared memory architecture and MPI is a distributed
memory architecture. If you set number of CPUs as the number of CPUs in
single node, Vina can take the advantage of those cores but other nodes
will be available to run other jobs. And you do not need to install MPI.

A node is every single *shared memory* computer with more than one CPUs
(cores) inside.
