Dear all,

I am trying to run a CCSD-T calculation, which is maybe a bit big and
the jobs just keeps doing on me and I cannot figure out why (not
enough memory or disk full or whatever), because I don't get a real
error message.

Maybe there is not enough memory, because I am not sure, whether I
really understand the use of the -ag and -gb options to pam.

I attach the output file and the error file from the queue system. Any
suggestion will be very welcome.

Best wishes
Stephan

Stephan.

the demand is :
Predicted RelCC memory demand: 77.686 GB

but "
DIRAC master (node218.cluster) starts by allocating 4026000000 r*8 words ( 29.996 GB) of memory"  ... you assign only 30GB via --gb

please use --ag=80   --gb=79 per 1 MPI thread

for example, on machine with 256GB RAM  you can afford --mpi=3, that is 3 MPI threads
