p p > j j j j process compilation

Asked by Shubhani Jain on 2020-06-24

Hi

I am trying to generate 100k events for p p > j j j j with j = g u c d s b u~ c~ d~ s~ b~ . But it gives me error after few Madevent run. Is it possible to do 10k events 10 times and then merge the lhe files to do pythia run in Madgraph interface ?

Debug file for 50k events:

Can you tar the directory and send me a link to me such that I can download it?

Hi,

I observe the following error in various part of the computation

[SubProcesses]$ grep "code" P*/G*/results.dat
P1_gg_gggg/G16a0/results.dat:end-code not correct 137
P1_gg_gggg/G16b0/results.dat:end-code not correct 137

P1_gg_gggg/G77c0/results.dat:end-code not correct 137

error 137 is typically for a program killing your process...
You should look at the log of your cluster to see why this happens (too much memory? suspend of the job to let another user to run? ...)

I have recompile one of those and run it on my laptop and did not face any issue at all.

Cheers,

Hi

Thanks for the prompt answer.

Would it be possible to run 10 pythia8 jobs and then merge the files together?

Regards

Shubhani

What people typically do is to then convert the hepmc output of pythia8 to root (do not ask me how they do that)
and then merge the root file.

It is also technically possible to do the merging at the hepmc file (we do that when we run pythia in multi-core mode)
But this is very touchy (different command for different os/...) and we do not yet have that part under full control.

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier

Thanks for the answer. I have forwarded my query to my hpc team and hopefully get an answer from them.
