dear users,

Iam running a simulation of a biomolecule containing ~60,000 atoms.I
sucessfully completed 2.2ns of simulation on cluster with 4 nodes on linux
platform (intel pentium,rethatlinux 7.3).then i tried to continue the job
on a cluster with 4 nodes with dual processors (intel xeon; red hat 7.2)

I used sander to run the simulation but hte job doesnot seem to produce
any output,neither it does not gives the following error

p0_26741: (1000.390736) entry 9: ~ 1 /home/programs/amber6/exe/sander

*But when i try to run a job with ~15,000 atoms ,the job runs succesfully.
I have about 5GB free space in master node and about 2gb in slave
the space problem?

*has anyone come across such problem.any help or suggestion regarding this
is welcome.thanking in advance.
