Debugging environment on MONSooN xcm

Reported by: philrosenberg Owned by: annette

Is there any form of debugging environment available on the MONSooN Cray xcm machine?

I found this information regarding Archer and wondered if is was possible to do the same with MONSooN, however, when trying to get an interactive session I got the following error:
prosen@xcml00:~> qsub -q normal -IVl select=4,walltime=0:10:0 -A dacciwa
qsub: standard input and output must be a terminal for

interactive job submission

Are interactive sessions not available on MONSooN?

Hi Phil,

DDT is available on MONSooN (use module load ddt) and assuming the setup is the same as the Met Office Cray it should be possible to run an interactive DDT session.

I have emailed the Met Office to ask if they have any instructions on this and will get back to you when we hear back.

Hi Phil,

It turns out that it is not possible to get an interactive batch session as on Archer.

However there are instructions for running ddt on MONSooN here:

The instructions refer to a submission file, which I am getting copied over.

I will try to have a go at this myself soon.
