MCNP5 stuck in loops

  1. Jul 4, 2016 #1
    I recently installed MCNP5 on rocks cluster running centOS 6.5, with mpich2-1.4.1p.
    While running simulations, MNCP5 is stuck in loop in 2 of the simulations.

    When I tried to perform one of the stuck simulations on windows with mpich-1.2.4, it didn't stuck. Can anyone guide me why MNCP5 is behaving differently on different operating systems.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I got the error too, mcnp5 stucked at 2 of simulations loop.
    Did you solved it ?

    There was nothing to solve. The problem was because of the way MCNP divides the problem for parallel solution. Only one of the Processes was stuck, while rest of the processes had done their job. I let it run and after some time it solved the problem.

    I let it run but it can't return normal after a very long time.
