I am trying to exclude a nonbonded interactions on the polymer chains using
grompp -f old.mdp -c old_em.gro -p nrexcl_new.top -o new.tpr
and mdrun -rerun command. but when I issue the command above grompp
takes many hours to finish and at the end grompp crashes (Killed).
This even leads to some weired hardware problem which gibes failure of
node having some CPUs..I mean when I get grompp failure, I am not able
to connect to the node anymore and will have to restart the node!

Excluding 101 bonded neighbours molecule type 'Polymer'
Can anyone help me please?
