#1068 closed error (fixed)

trying to run a um job but fails to extract ATM

Reported by: bs Owned by: annette
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: PUMA
UM Version: 7.7


Hello I am trying to run a job that Tim Graham (tigrah) ran with the difference that he ran it on monsoon and I am trying to run it on hector. It uses version 7.7 of the um. When it tries to extract the code using fcm it extracts BASE ok and then fails when trying to extract ATM. the umui job is called ximpa and the extract output is in ~bs/FCM_extracts/ximpa/ummodel/ext.out. It says the return code is 25:

Calling NDS_MAIN_SCR - local…
(This may take several minutes.)

NDS_MAIN: Calling Extract …
Extracting BASE …
BASE extract is OK
Extracting ATM …
ATM extract failed
NDS_MAIN: Extract failed
NDS_MAIN stopped with return code 25

Your job directory on host is: /home/n01/n01/bsinha/umui_runs/ximpa-136110750

Hi Bablu,

Unfortunately version 7.7 of the UM is not installed on HECToR, which is why you will see an error.

Is there a 7.8 job you could copy instead?

Hi Annette, there is another job we can copy at version 8.0 - not sure if
that is on HECToR? Ultimately we may want to run 8.3, again not sure if
that is on Hector. If 8.0 or 8.3 are not on hector we will just have to
adapt the 7.7 job to run on 7.6 or 7.8 I guess? The main thing we want is
to run an N96, ORCA1 combination.

Best wishes, Bablu

Hi Bablu,

Version 8.0 is installed on HECToR so you should be fine to use that. 8.3 is not installed but I believe 8.2 is.

Due to the effort involved in porting and testing, we don't have the resources to install all versions of the UM on HECToR. Instead we aim to support a useful subset based on what the majority of users require.

Just to add that the installed UM versions on HECToR and MONSooN are listed on the UM trac wiki page:
