Disk Quota on /work ARCHER

Reported by: cryder Owned by: um_support
Component: ARCHER Keywords: quota
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 7.8



Would it be possible to increase my quota on /work/n02/n02/cryder to 3TB please?

I'm about to do some runs which will produce around 70GB per year of run, so for 30-40 years of run I would need more space.

I would intend to move the runs over to the RDF after they've finished running. If this is not the best practice, please could you suggest what I should be doing differently?

Hi Claire,

I run an automatic backup and prune to the RDF in my SWAMMA runs. These are carried out via an end script which is executed when a CRUN completes. The end script submits a serial job which backs up everything to the RDF and then works out what it can prune. It tries to keep several CRUNs worth on /work in case you need to restart.

My scripts are on ARCHER in /work/n02/n02/wmcginty and they are lbc_update_4km_v2.scr (the end script) and prune_workdir (the serial job). You would need to adjust these for your purposes. It takes about 3hrs/TB to backup to the RDF so this determines the duration of the serial job, which should be generous.

Hi Willie,

Thanks, I'll certainly have a look at that script. In the meantime, would it also be possible to increase my /work quota please?
