[QE-users] SCF not converging in QE6.3 (but it does so in, QE6.0)

Dear Pietro, Paolo and Davide,
thank you for your hints. Indeed by changing the number of CPUs the
calculation *may* converge also with QE6.3. For example:
2pools-x-34cpus-x-2omp (ie #MPIxOpenMP cores = #cpus)
are OK, but
2pools-x-68cpus-x-1omp (ie #MPIxOpenMP cores = #cpus)
does not converge again, although I'm not asking for more tasks than
cpus (see Pietro's comment). Also, KNL nodes in A2 should support
so I would not expect that asking for a number of threads that is twice
the number of allocated cpu's would be a problem - nor it is for QE6.0
and for the inputs with the molecule/surface.
I though this could be related to the size of the system since I had no
problems with the heavier molecule/surface case; however, the problem is
also present for larger, clean-Au(111), unit cells.
I can now circumvent the issue, thank you. I'd also be curious to know
what is the reason...
