Hi NWCHEM developers.

I found an issue when using 2emet=9 in CCSD calculation.

It is reproduced in ubuntu 16.04 and NWCHEM from apt repo or compiled from source by standard procedure.

Input file
title "H2 CCSD/cc-pVDZ energy"

permanent_dir /var/tmp
scratch_dir /var/tmp

memory stack 100 mb heap 100 mb global 2000 mb

geometry
 symmetry C1
 H       0.0      0.0      0.6
 H       0.0      0.0     -0.6
end

scf
 direct
end

basis spherical
 H library cc-pVDZ
end

tce
 ccsd
 2eorb
 2emet 9

end

driver

end

emet 15

I would recommend use of emet=15 since it is much faster

Hi Vladimir,
2emet 9 is disk based procedure using shared files.
I recommend using GA based procedures:
2eorb
2emet 13
(or mentioned by Edo 2emet 15, which is very fast but more memory thirsty).
You may also use "2emet 14" option followed by "split" keyword - works the same as "2emet 13"
but builds atomic 2-electron integrals in batches (which saves a lot of memory).

Best,
Karol

I created 2emet=9 in 2008 specifically to run big jobs on my laptop. It worked then but has not been tested much and may have bugs. I recall it only works on one node. 2emet=14 is a much better option that has a much higher probability of working.

This calculation includes a ROHF final molecular orbital analysis in NWCHEM6.8.

With NWCHEM6.8 on Ubuntu17.10 and openmpi-dev on my HP workstation using four threads,
2emet 9 fails with

mpirun noticed that process rank 0 with PID 0 on node hp-HP-Z2-Mini-G3-Workstation exited on signal 8 (Floating point exception).

, but 2emet 13, 14 , and 15 all can finish with with the same results
...
Total times cpu: 0.2s wall: 0.2s (2emet 15)
This calculation is very robust and fast on this computer.

Employing macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (with NWCHEM6.8 compiled on 10.13.2) and mpich 3.2_2 on my MAC with three cores,
2emet 9 fails with

On both platform, it takes the time with surely negligible differences for each succesfull 2emet.

If the github topic is created, I will put the log files there.
