Ancillary on xcm

I'm trying to create ancillary files using CAP9.0 on xcm.
I've got a message 'PBS: job killed: walltime 682 exceeded limit 600'.
I think that this is not just walltime problem.

job submit directory:


output dir:


Submit command:

$UMDIR/vn9.0/cray/ancil/build/v1.1/bin/AncilScr_RunAncil -M -d $WORKDIR/ctr1_50m.xml -A $OUTDIR -a mask -v

Also I did resubmit 'qsub AncilScr_mask' in $OUTDIR after increasing the walltime clock to 1hour, but I've got the same message.

Did I something wrong?

Hi Juwon,

If you compare your driving xml with


it looks like you need to specify the grid namelist in the xml file. For a 700x500 mask, it should be quite quick, not as long as an hour.
