error during run

Asked by Juhi Dutta on 2018-12-07

Dear experts,

I am encountering this error sometimes while running the following process in Madgraph:

import model /scratch/juhi/workspace1/MG5_aMC_v2_6_2/models/GldGrv_UFO\
1
define cha = x1+ x1-
define fermions = l+ l- vl vl~ tau- tau+ u c d s u~ c~ s~ d~
generate p p > n2 cha, ( n2 > n1 fermions fermions, ( n1 > z grv, z > \
l+ l-)), ( cha > n1 fermions fermions, ( n1 > h01 grv, h01 > b b~ )) @\
1
output cn2_hz

Dear Juhi,

This part of the code is used when result are so small that fortran code are not able to format them correctly.
So this part of the code is expected to handle contribution cross-section from 1e-100 to 1e-999
so looks like you face a special case that I can not handle yet.

Can you run the following command:
cd /scratch/juhi/workspace1/MG5_aMC_v2_6_2/cn2_hz/SubProcesses
rm log.txt;for i in `ls -d P*`; do cd $i; head -n 1 G*/results.dat | grep -v results >> ../log.txt; cd ..; done;

and then send that file
/scratch/juhi/workspace1/MG5_aMC_v2_6_2/cn2_hz/SubProcesses/log.txt
by email (not via launchpad) to me.

Cheers,

Olivier

and log.txt is empty?

Is it possible that you re-run inside that directory?
If yes, please rerun the above script after the next crash without that information I will not be able to provide a reliable patch.

Olivier

HI,

Thanks for the file.
So I do not see any formatting issue in that file. But some of the file have an hard crash information instead of the cross-section:
"end-code not correct 2"

I'm surprised that such error is not more explicit (it typically is) but ok.
In any case, you should now make a grep on the above message to find in which G directory this crash occurs.
and check the associated log file.
(in principle this code error is associated to a bash error but I can be wrong on that)

Cheers,

Olivier
