The message is quite obvious about what happened: mdrun received a

Figuring out the reason who and why sent a TERM signal to your mdrun
will be your task, but I can think of 2 basic scenarios: (I) you (or
someone else) manually kill-ed your mdrun; (II) it ran out of the time
allocated for this process (on a cluster?).
