disk space on hpcx

Just a quick question:

I'm having problems running on hpcx due to exceeding user/group quota.
I've cleaned quite a lot in my devt space but I'm not sure if I'm the reason for the lack of space.
Am I correct in thinking that we all share a quota on devt or do I have my own quota?
I'm running LAM runs, 12 km, 48 hours, i.e. not really that big compared to long climate runs

  • I think.

Sorry Nina we are all having problems as $DEVTDIR is a fixed 9 Tbyte disk system which is now nearly full. I am trying to clear the disk space to give us more headroom so that individual allocations can operate as usual.

everything is full today - I can't do anything!!!
I'm trying to not to use to much space, but as I'm having problems designing a LAM domain I can't throw much more out.
Surely there are "blacker" sheep out there….

A desperate Nina

I have just increased your $DEVTDIR allocation Nina. It does take a couple of hours sometimes for this to be implemented. $DEVTDIR is rather overallocated at the moment but we are transferring 2Tbytes of communal data to another disk space so hopefully this will evetually liberate group allocation for users.

Sorry you got so desperate, hopefully things will improve when the registration system recognises the changes I have made.

Thank you Lois

  • it was just such a blow to come in this morning, finding out that my three (little) jobs all crashed during the night and there wasn't even enough space to run one of them.

All the best from sunny Norwich,
