[Pw_forum] electron-phonon calculation stucks

Electron-phonon calculation is very very expensive.
By my little experience, the problem may never be memory and your
calculation might not have necessarily 'stuck'.
Your system seems to be very huge and it would take  a lot of time to run.
Mine is just 11 atoms and the second q-point was not completed after 48
hours of calculations on 96 processors.

So, the only way of handling such situation is to split your job either
along q-points, irreps or both.

There are examples on splitting in qe examples in case you are not familiar
with that.

Kind regards,
