Disk quota on ARCHER

Reported by: gmann Owned by: gmann

UM Version: 8.4

Description

Dear NCAS-CMS helpdesk,
I'm running a copy of the xlavb UM-UKCA CheST+GLOMAP Release Job on ARCHER (my xlazf) but it failed after 2160 timesteps when writing dump with disk quota error.

Please can you increase my disk quota on /work/n02/n02/gmann/.

Note also that in the next few weeks I will be setting up a perturbed-physics ensemble of UM-UKCA runs based around this job so will require quite some increase to be able to run a sequence of ~50 5-year runs in total.

We'll use job-arrays on dedicated nodes and will of course set automatic archiving for the climate-means, dumps etc.

However, just to build several parallel jobs seems to require quite a lot of disk space.

I'm not sure what my current quota on /work/n02/n02 is but at the moment I don't seem to have much….

Up until now I've been running short development jobs and almost entirely on MONSOON but in the coming weeks and months we'll be submitting more capacity-type jobs on ARCHER.

On HECToR I recall having a large disk quota on /work and never encountered a problem with disk quota.

Please could you increase my /work/n02/n02/gmann quota to allow a good number of UM jobs to be built & run in parallel.

Thanks
Graham

Hi Graham,

Sorry that we didn't reply to this. For some reason the ticket is 'owned' by you which means we didn't get an email alert about it.

Anyway we have increased your quota - you can log in to SAFE to check the details:

https://www.archer.ac.uk/safe/

This should be applied in a few hours. Let us know if you have any further issues.

Best regards,
Annette
