AW: Log file is not being updated

A different directory doesn’t imply a different disk/filesystem. What’s the output of


df simulation1_dir

df simulation2_dir

df simulation3_dir

Hello Ajasja,


No, all three log files are in different directories. And, no, outputEnergies and all other parameters are the same for all three.


The point is, at the beginning all three log files were regularly updated, but then one of them suddenly stopped being updated.

Are all three log files being written to the same disk and file system?

Perhaps you have accidentally set outputEnergies to some high number in the configuration file for the third simulation?


Best regards,

Dear All,


We're running NAMD 2.8. The problem is that, after a while in simulations, log files are not being updated.


I'm running three simulations now. log files of the first two are regularly updated as the simulations progress; I can see at which timestep I am. On the other hand, for the third simulation, log file is not being updated for a week. Therefore, I cannot see the timesteps etc. However, all other files like .dcd, .coor and .vel files are updated, so it seems like the simulation is on progress.


What might be the reason for that?

Thank you and cheers,
