Crash in reweight module with "change process"

Asked by Hannes on 2020-10-23

Hi,

we have a problem when using 'change process' in reweighting, at LO, with v2.8.1 and a SMEFTsim model.
The debug log can be found at the bottom of this message. The code tries to find a ident_card.dat that does not exist.
The reweighting runs fine in the beginning, where we only change the parameter values but once we try to change the process it crashes, this is the critical point in the reweight card:

change process p p > h j j QCD=0 NP=0
launch --rwgt_name=SM --rwgt_info=SM

The nominal process p p > h j j QCD=0 NP^2==1 NP=1.

Unfortunately, the problem only appears in certain environments and so far we could not figure out why the Atlas production environment is problematic.
In setups that don't crash, there also seems to be no ident_card.dat at rw_me/Source/MODEL/ (there is always one at rw_me/Source/MODEL/ though).

Could you help us to debug this problem?

Cheers,
Hannes

Could you correct your typo in this sentences:
> In setups that don't crash, there also seems to be no ident_card.dat at rw_me/Source/MODEL/ (there is always one at rw_me/Source/MODEL/ though).

In your setup did you run mg5amc with python2 or python3 executable (if python3 which version of python3?)

Concerning the traceback, it indicates that it crashes when trying to create that file (not to read it).
So the issue is that either the directory
/afs/cern.ch/work/a/ancuetog/MadGraph/Newtest/run/PROC_SMEFTsim_A_U35_MwScheme_UFO-massless_Hyy_0/rw_me/Source/
does not exists (or is not available due to an afs mounting error)
or another IO issue (like you do not have permission to write in that directory --likely related to quota or other limitation--)

This really sounds an issue related to your filesystem (I'm not expert in afs mounting point, but I remember to have face a lot of issues in the past with those)

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

thanks a lot for the quick reply. Indeed there seems to be a problem with afs, it works fine on e.g. /tmp.
It's not really straight forward though , the directory does exist, is writeable, and there is quota available (maybe it's a temporary issue?). We've used python2.
I think we can run without relying on afs, that makes the problem less urgent.

Cheers,
Hannes

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Hannes for more information if necessary.
