VASP job with Out-of-Memory crashes compute node(s)


There is a bug with VASP 5.4.1 built with mvapich2/2.2 on Owens such that the VASP job with out-of-memory issue crashes the Owens compute node(s). We will investigate monitoring for this type of jobs so that we can cleanup after the job more efficiently, and notify the user of their problem more quickly.

Please contact OSC Help if you need more information, or see the same issue with other versions of VASP on our systems.
