Running UM7.0 on a machine other than the supercomputer

Reported by: rupert Owned by: lois
Component: UM Model Keywords: UM7.0 JULES CHOCOLATE-CAKE-MMMM
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 7.0


I'm now at the stage where I am ready to migrate my JULES modifications to 7.0. Could you advise on the best way for me to do this considering the fact it would make sense to run the exe on a machine in Manchester, or at least *not* the supercomputer. I guess I could use the supercomputer but it seems a little over the top for initial development/debugging/testing.

In a previous discussion with Ros, we were talking about setting up the experiment and exporting it so I could play with it in Manchester but there was the other option of telling the UMUI to use my machine or perhaps a small machine in Reading?, instead of Hector (or whatever the latest supercomputer is called). I guess the latter is cleaner and does not require me to have 7.0 code (apart from the UMUI I presume?), so would be simplest.

Many thanks for any help

Hello Rupert,

We haven't had vn 7.0 long enough to fine tune the options in the centralised UMUI we use on PUMA. We haven't looked at or set up the option to allow you to use "@ on a workstation", so we are not sure this all works.

Ros was exploring the option of changing the PUMA UMUI so that we could extract the code separately from the job submission which would then enable you to sftp your working copy back to Manchester. Ros may not have had time to complete this before she left for her holiday. She will be back on 1st October.

We haven't really finished the full testing of vn 7.0 on HECToR either as Ros has only been looking at a prototype atmosphere job for Hadgem3? What are you planning for the coupling to JULES? You are welcome to try it on HECToR under the NCAS account if this would be useful. Let me know if this is an option you would like to explore and I will send instructions how to register for an account.
