Check log files in server_logs and mom_logs folders in the TORQUE_HOME. You can find there what is going on in more detail.

This is related to running GROMACS through mpirun and Torque. After I
installed Torque in our lab cluster, I went on to test GROMACS using a
simple run. I wrote a Torque script as follows:

#PBS -N asyn
#PBS -q batch
#PBS -l nodes=4:ppn=4
#PBS -l walltime=120:00:00
cat $PBS_NODEFILE>nodes
mpirun -np 16 gmx_mpi mdrun -deffnm asyn_10ns

After I submit this file using qsub command, the job is properly
showing using pbsnodes command in other mom units.

But, the job stays as R in 00:00:00 in the list. I presume, this might
be an error from my part in setting up GROMACS with Torque. I compiled

The nodes file is not written and the job stays stuck.

Can anyone familiar with job scheduling help me in this regard???
