[SOLVED] SM2021 not terminating running processes after pressing STOP

Good morning,

while I did not find any other problems so far with SM2021 (also no problems with the MPI version on top of it, and also not with software rendering), I noticed that, when I press 'STOP' in the GUI, SM shows me everthing is stopped. But 'python3' processes keep running in the background. I have to terminate or kill them by hand with htop (quite a task with many processes...).

Anyone else has this behaviour?

@developers: do you see this behaviour also? If I am not careful and have to restart a simulation, I will oversubscribe the CPU, essentially nearly freezing the computer....

Thank you,

Mario.

This is a known problem with MPI version of aster launched with AsterStudy

No fix for the moment except kill manually run_aster process

Re: [SOLVED] SM2021 not terminating running processes after pressing STOP

Normally I would not post in a thread marked as solved, but this is directly relating to this topic and this thread is a pretty current one,  so I'll risk it.

I wanted to report, that I encountered the same issue using the MPI version (the container Mario built) when launching the study using ASTK.
When I terminate/kill the main run_aster process, the individual processes for each processor remain.

Edit: naturally, it kills everything, if I kill the mpi-exec process.

Thanks,
Jonas
