Does anyone know of any explicit (or effective) limits on the number of models you can batch with EP-Launch group sim? My team is having some trouble debugging our usual AWS workflow and I was trying to just get some simulations running in the meantime, and gave EP-Launch a group sim file with ~400,000 simulations. It's just kind of been sitting there thinking for a couple hours now though. Is that too much to handle and I need to reduce the size, or maybe just go a python route instead?

I cannot think of any specific limit in EP-Launch group simulations but I will say that it was not programmed with the intention of running more than hundreds of simulations at a time. I'm honestly surprised it did not immediately crash. You might want to do some smaller scale testing (let me know the results) or just switch to running the simulation using Python.

OK thanks. I've had no problem in the past going up to the hundreds. I'll do a quick test with a slightly smaller list (1000 or so) and see what happens, otherwise just go the script route.
