What we can note is:

  • Larger k-points grids are needed with respect the insulator case
  • Notice that you cannot reduce the broadening too much: the energy levels must have some overlap, or else the advantage of broadening is lost. A small broadening is needed, but it can be reduced only if the k point grid is dense enough
  • Note that the number of bands (Kohn-Sham states) is no longer automatically set to the number of electrons divided by 2, but a larger number of bands is considered.
  • Note also that for metallic system the Fermi energy is reported in the output
