failure to get annual means pp files for a HadCM3 control run on Hector

Reported by: salvatore Owned by: jeff
Component: UMUI Keywords: HadCM3 on Hector
Cc: Platform:
UM Version:


I am not able to have proper annual mean on a standard HadCM3 control run. The job is xdocb. I have set run length=1year and in the Usge Profile for UPMEAN and UPSYX I have specified 2 climate mean period, i.e. as you can see in Atmosphere/Control/Post? Processing,Dumping&Meaning/Dumping?&Meaning:
Restart Dump every 180 days.

The wrong pp files a I get are something like: xdocba.pmc9dec xdocbo.pmc9dec

and xdocba@pam89dc,xdocba@pcm90c1, xdocbo@pdm90c1,xdocbo@phm89dc,xdocbo@pjm89dc, which are not what I expect.

My username on puma is salvatore; the job is xdocb

Where am I wrong in th set up of my job?

Many thanks in advance

Hi Salvatore

Your runs are only 30 days long, thats why you don't get annual means. You have set the run length to be 1 year but in umui window

Sub-model Independent → Job submission, resources and re-submission pattern

click on the NEXT button and you can see you have set up the model to run in 1 month chunks, either turn off this panel (top left button) or set the chunk size to be 1 year.

As far as the job xdocb is concerned, the proper annual means still fail to come out. I have done what suggested in xdocb in Job Resources and re-submission—>Specify .. =1 year and in xdocc
I have turned off on the top left. But I got files like :

compile.xdocb xdocb.fort6.pe12 xdocb.fort6.pe7 xdocba@pam90jn
recon_compile.xdocb xdocb.fort6.pe13 xdocb.fort6.pe8 xdocba@pcm90c1
xdocb.astart xdocb.fort6.pe14 xdocb.fort6.pe9 xdocbo@dam9061
xdocb.exec xdocb.fort6.pe15 xdocb.out xdocbo@pdm90c1
xdocb.exec.parexe.10981 xdocb.fort6.pe2 xdocb.pphist xdocbo@phm90jn
xdocb.fort6.pe0 xdocb.fort6.pe3 xdocb.recon xdocbo@pjm90jn
xdocb.fort6.pe1 xdocb.fort6.pe4 xdocb.requests
xdocb.fort6.pe10 xdocb.fort6.pe5 xdocb.thist
xdocb.fort6.pe11 xdocb.fort6.pe6 xdocba@dam9061

Many thanks in advance

Hi Salvatore

If you look in your output files you will see this line

⇒> PBS: job killed: walltime 3606 exceeded limit 3600

So you have exceeded the job time, you need to increase this if you want to run a full year.
