Command "generate_events pilotrun" interrupted with error

Asked by Abbas

Dear experts,
I am trying to generate a GridPack to make MC samples for p p > l+ l- l+ l-
I have successfully generated a gridpack in NLO with minimum inverient mass of l+l- pair of 2GeV.
However, since in LO I can apply some generation level cuts such as minimum and maximum pt for leptons, I would like to use LO cards. The process successfully generates when I don't put any cuts (for maximum parameters), but it fails with the following error when I set any maximum cuts (e.g. ptlmax)

I would appreciate any help.

P.S. does "mmnl ! min invariant mass for all letpons (l+- and vl)" mean the mass of, in my case, 4 final state leptons combined?

Is there more information in the log file?
Do you have pre-emption within your cluster?
Not sure that we do support those actually?

Those type of error are typically cluster related, I'm not sure if i can trigger such type of error by a wrong run_card or similar.
Now it is True that your cut are quite complex to handle and might generate issue (like the phase-space integrator fails to find any point passing such complex cut and therefore fails to optimize).

Yes.
