Global Job Failing in Reconfiguration

Reported by: LSaffin Owned by: annette
Component: UM Model Keywords: reconfiguration, stash
Cc: Platform: MONSooN
UM Version: 7.3


I'm trying to run a global model (job xjjhx) using automatic resubmission and getting the message,

/projects/diamet/lsaffi/xjjhx/bin/qsexecute: Error in dump reconfiguration - see OUTPUT

in the .leave file (/home/lsaffi/output/xjjhx000.xjjhx.d14260.t151358.leave on monsoon).

The job uses PV tracers edits under,


with stash modified by the file,
as well as the fix

Something in there has caused an error in the umui when trying to add new diagnostics which may be related.

Unexpected STASH option code st_mask_n(8)=3. Model A. Section 0

I did get this job to run as a regular job but adding in the automatic resubmission options stopped it working.

Hi Leo,

Sorry for the delay in responding to this.

The error when trying to load a diagnostic in STASH is not what is causing the job to fail. It's a known bug with the UMUI and user stash-master files. See #1041 for how to get around it.

The .leave file is pretty unhelpful in your case, but if you go to your job output directory (defined as $DATAW in the UMUI) you can see the reconfiguration output files from all pes. Opening a non-empty file, (eg, xjjhx.fort6.rcfa.pe1) shows the error message:

 ERROR!!! in reconfiguration in routine Rcf_Set_Data_Source
 Error Code:-  30
 Error Message:-  Section  0 Item  321  : Required field is not in input dump!
 Error generated from processor  1

This field comes from the user stash file /home/sws04jc/28trancil7.3. And it is set to initialise from the start file in the UMUI panel "Atmosphere → STASH → Initialisation of User prognostics"

Hopefully this gives you enough information to fix your problem, but if not let me know.

  • Keywords reconfiguration, stash added

I should add that through the "User prognostics" panel it is possible to set the field to a constant or read in from a different file. I don't think any of the fields from /home/sws04jc/28trancil7.3 are in the start file.

That was the issue, thanks. I needed to set the fields to initialise from the start dump in the resubmit runs but not the initial run.
