#1724 closed error (worksforme)

jobs do not run on ARCHER - diagnostics issue?

Reported by: fpithan Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 8.5



I am trying to run a series of UM jobs (here xlgta) on ARCHER, but they crash when starting the model execution with the message below. I managed to start a basically identical job before, but have since added a number of diagnostics (mostly related to drag) to be output. I have compiled a new executable and reconfiguration after changing the job. Do you have any better idea than individually adding diagnostics to find out which one causes an issue?

qsserver: RUNID=xlgta
qsserver: ARCHIVEDIR=/nerc/n02/n02/fpithan/umdrag1

I found this in the setup check and resolved these issues, hopefully that was the problem…

Errors will be output in this window
Level list invalid in PSEUDO panel of Domain Profile 'DICECAT' (Edit Profile in window atmos_STASH)
Variable: PSLIST_A(*,14)

→ Model Selection

→ Atmosphere


→ STASH. Specification of Diagnostic requirements

→ Domain profile window, 2

List Check Error in window subindep_UMCET
Variable: ENSEMBLE

→ Model Selection

Input/Output? Control and Resources

→ Ensemble Set-up

Verification is complete.
If an error was detected then find the window, enter and close it.
This will either generate a more informative error message or it will
result in the setting of a previously unset hidden variable.

I'll be surprised if this is the cause of the problem you have - please let us know what happens.

Thanks Grenville - for now, the run crashed because /nerc can't be accessed, but this seems to be an issue with rdf on ARCHER noted on their status website. I'll keep you posted.

Unfortunately, I cannot surprise you - the run keeps crashing with the same error message. Any ideas?

The problem is with something in stash.

The model runs OK (well for several hundred tss before I stopped it) if you switch off all stash (see my copy of your job xmbda) - I also switched off archiving, but that wasn't the problem.

I suggest that you play with including stash bit by bit until you find the culprit - did you add stash to the job?

I think you don't need the hand-edit ~karthee/umui_jobs/hand-edits/add_modules.ed - it runs with or without, but one of your errors was perftools related, which may be relate to this hand edit.

I found a set of STASH that seems to work, leaving out the SSO drag diagnostic in the end and saving blocking and gravity wave drag daily rather than monthly. I do not understand why the more complete set of diagnostics did not work, though.
