Hi,

I've been trying to run some CCSD/aug-cc-pVTZ calculations of small molecule dipole and polarizabilities with the LR TCE code. I've been getting ARMCI DASSERT errors when the CCSD step starts. I am running on a GNU/Linux Intel 64 cluster with IB. There are 8 cores per node, 2 gb per core This error happens even when I run with 320 cores (2 gb per core). I've seen similar things reported on the forum in the past without any resolution.

Here is the error message:
tce_ao2e: fast2e=1
half-transformed integrals in memory

2-e (intermediate) file size =     21950317536
2-e (intermediate) file name = ./acet.v2i

The input file is:

Note that I've tried different 2eorb options without any success. aug-cc-pVDZ jobs complete without any issues.

My compile options were:
module purge
module load intel/12.1.3
module load openmpi/1.4.4-intel-v12.1

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks,

Hi Chris,
it is always safer to use the explicit memory allocation.
Assuming you gave 2GB available per core please use the following memory specification:

memory stack 1000 mb heap 50 mb global 800 mb noverify

I also presume that your molecule is of closed-shell type. In such a case please use the more efficient form of the 4-index transformation (which is valid only for the RHF/ROHF references).
In order to enable it please add the following lines to your tce input group:

2eorb
2emet 13
attilesize 40

make sure that tilesize is smaller than the attilesize. By enabling this 4-index transfromation you will
save a lot of memory.

Best,
Karol

I solve all my ARMCI segfault problems with http://wiki.mpich.org/armci-mpi/index.php/NWChem.

Best,

Jeff
