are these histograms taken over the time period where exchanges
are not happening?

>>> I am working on the folding of a small peptide using REMD in Amber 10. Sometimes, a replica finds a low energy conformation, then it is annealed to the lowest temperature. After that, this replica seems to be trapped in a few, maybe two or three, low temperatures, with a high "back exchange" frequency.
