error message on restart after crash
« on: December 16, 2022, 02:27:38 AM »
I am running a GCMC simulation for adsorption in a MOF that will run for several million steps. I wrote the binary restart file and when my job crashed, I tried to restart it. It read in the binary file and immediately crashed with this error:

read binary file
Failed to Reposition output-file at 398119 ( beyond file-length 396809)

I tried running a small test case and the restart worked fine. What does this error mean?

Note sure,  but could be that the crash damage the restart-file. This could happen when the crash happens at the exact time the binary-restart-file is written to disk.
