job on archer runs too slow

Hi there,
trying to run HiGEM on archer, the problem I have got now is that it runs too slow. The HiGEM jobs usually take about 3 hrs on Hector and they have nominal wallclock time of 6 hrs. But now my HiGEM job stopped because it took longer that 6hrs, while I was expecting it to run faster than on Hector. Could you please check? The .leave file is
Thank you very much!

Please try running a short test on fewer processors - Jeff was running with 8x15.

Ok, I'm trying to run with 8x15 processors now, but the job is stuck in the queue:

Not Running: Host set host=archer_2901 has too few free resources

I'll wait overnight to see what happens.

OK this seems to work now, thank you.

Next question is why it shows up in the queue with 24 hrs requested time, while I specified 6hrs (21600 sec) in the UMUI? It's not a big deal, but it would be nice to know …

Thank you!

Hi Till,

I think this is because your job has automatic resubmission switched on but doesn't specify a QSUB time in this window for the CRUNs (Sub-model indept → Job submission and resources Click Next to get the Auto-resubmission window). Hence in the umuisubmit_run QSUB script we get walltime= and ARCHER then defaults this to 24hours.
