Re: Erroneous hessian with PCM.

Alex Granovsky

Hi Pavel,

if you look into bad output file, you'll find that almost all
$vib groups contain zeros instead of some meaningful data.
In overall, this output looks really strange.

This is definitely a bug, however, this could be either
some hidden bug in Firefly, or, alternatively, the bug
caused by the hardware malfunction on one of the nodes.

Could you please provide the exact input file for our analysis
and verification? In addition, what was the cluster
used for calculations?
