[CP2K-user] Increasing trend and discontinuity after restart in Lagrange multipliers file *-1.LagrangeMultLog

Dear all,

I'm performing a constrained MD simulation where I have constrained 10 
distances. The simulation is long so I have broken the simulation in parts 
of 100000 steps each, each time using the previous *-1.restart file as a 
starting point. 

The problem is that every time I restart the simulation I see an obvious 
discontinuity in the *-1.LagrangeMultLog file. This discontinuity is 
observed every 600000 lines in the  *-1.LagrangeMultLog file as shown by 
the red arrow in the three examples pictures attached corresponding to 
lines 600000, 1200000 and 1800000. This discontinuity is not observed in 
the trajectory file or any other file. 

Moreover, ignoring the fact that I could have some problem in how I restart 
the simulation, you can see an obvious trend for the lagrange multipliers 
to increase within each restart calculation. This increase is also not 
justified by any other file outputted by cp2k.

It appears to me some kind of cumulative error within the calculation of 
the lagrange multipliers. Any ideas of why could this be, or how to solve 
it?

Best regards,

Alejandro.
