problem with shower job

Asked by Seulgi Kim on 2019-06-01

Hi,

I'm trying to generate some events with mg5 and pythia8, but there is a problem.
If I don't change run_card.dat, it works. But when I turn off PDF in run_card.dat, my job is stopping here.

Submitting Pythia8 jobs...
Pythia8 shower jobs: 1 Idle, 0 Running, 0 Done [0 second]
Pythia8 shower jobs: 0 Idle, 1 Running, 0 Done [5m00s]

First, I just thought it takes long time, but it was still in the same state a few hours after.
I tried many times, but the results were same.
I don't know why it doesn't work when I turn off PDF.

Cheers,
Seulgi

Did you try to run pythia8 outside of MG5aMC?
Did you turn off in PY8 all ISR radiation any feature related to the beam?

Cheers,

Olivier

No, I ran pythia8 inside of MG5aMC.

I changed the run_cared.dat like below.
before:
     1 = lpp1 ! beam 1 type
     1 = lpp2 ! beam 2 type
after:
     0 = lpp1 ! beam 1 type
     0 = lpp2 ! beam 2 type

Cheers,
Seulgi

Well I do not know how to run Pythia for such setup. I am also doubtful of the physics you are trying (or I misunderstood what you try to do)

Cheers
