[Gate-users] Run Aborted after *** events processed

Hello Gate Users,
I am the questioner and I am here again. At someone's prompt, I turned all vis function commands commented, and I set: 

/gate/verbose Error     2
/gate/verbose Warning   2
/run/verbose  2
/event/verbose 1
/tracking/verbose 0

...to see more details of the error during run. 
Everything ran well until after the 9996th event was processed. The system prompted "0 primaries are passed from G4EventTransformer", followed by "Run aborted after 9996 events processed". The complete log file of the running process is shown in the attachment.

I tried the ecat system and the cylindricalPET system, and also tried different scanners and phantoms setups, but the results were all the same. I tried running it on vGate v9.0, vGate v8.0 and the Linux server with Gate9 installed, but the problem still exists. I think this does not seem to be a problem of operating environment or memory overflow.
I need help urgently. If anyone can make valuable suggestions, I would be very grateful!

Lujia Jin,

主题: Run Aborted after *** events processed

Hello Gate Users,

 I built an Ecat system for PET simulation and I successfully got the output file in .root format. But there seemed to be some errors when the program ended:

G4VisManager: Using G4TrajectoryDrawByCharge as fallback trajectory model.
See commands in /vis/modeling/trajectories/ for other options.

 I think "Run Aborted after *** events processed" means that the program has exited abnormally. Changing the settings of scanner or phantom would not eliminate this problem. However, the cylindrical PET system was able to operate successfully. So maybe someone has encountered a similar problem or knows a solution?

 Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy schedule to read my mail. I would be grateful if anyone can provide some ideas to solve the problem!
