I'm working on an i7 laptop with the parallel version of Quantum ESPRESSO (8 processors are running). I ran a post-processing calculation by
pp.x -in ppinput.in > ppoutput.out and the following input:
&INPUTPP prefix='rocksalt', outdir='.', filplot='ppoutputfile.txt', plot_num=9, / &PLOT nfile=1, iflag=3, output_format=3, fileout='rocksalt.xsf', e1(1)=1.0,e1(2)=0.0,e1(3)=0.0, e2(1)=0.0,e2(2)=1.0,e2(3)=0.0, e3(1)=0.0,e3(2)=0.0,e3(3)=1.0, x0(1)=0.0,x0(2)=0.0,x0(3)=0.0, nx=101, ny=101, nz=101, /
The ppoutputfile.txt file was generated very quickly but the rocksalt.xsf file is not generated yet, knowing that it is been 9 hours now and the operation did not complete yet . When I open the ppoutput.out file it is written in the last line
Writing data to be plotted to file rocksalt.xsf .
Is it normal that the calculation still did not complete till now?
pp.xthat i`m running i found that CPU=6% and memory=10.8 MiB (This line is repeated 8 times ). It is 1day now and the simulation still did not complete yet $\endgroup$
