Increase iteration limit for geometry optimization
« on: March 08, 2021, 10:39:13 AM »
I have a geometry optimization that converges very slowly. As such it does easily exceed the 100 iterations limit that is employed by default.

I did check the energy trajectory though and it does keep decreasing the energy. Also the structures still look reasonable.

Thus I want to continue optimizing the structure. However it tends to get a bit annoying having to restart the optimization every 100 cycles. Unfortunately I did not find an option to increase this limit. Can this be done? If so: how?

Thanks

Hi, you can set the number of optimization steps when you run jobex. For example:

jobex -ri -c 300

Best,
Antti
