Job ends with error "timed out after 30 seconds"

Many of my psi4 jobs ended with following error:

Command ‘[’/home/mmithun/miniconda3/bin/psi4’, ‘–version’]’ timed out after 30 seconds

I’m not really sure what this error means? Can it be connected with running the jobs in resource constrained environment (i.e. I have machine with 36 cpus and 192GB memory and I run 3 psi4 jobs in parallel each using 12 processors and 8GB of memory )

I attach also whole error trace at the end of output file and the file itself
psi.txt (5.9 KB)
