walltime missing upon submission to archer

Reported by: till Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords: walltime
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 6.1


I'm trying to submit a short test run with HiGEM, from puma to Archer. UM6.1.
Upon submission, Archers says "please specify walltime" and the job is not added to the queue.
I'm using the same scripts (UMUI) as I did until 2014, so I guess I miss some more recent changes.
The job ID is XJBFJ, see

I have a hunch that the walltime is required for compiling the exec for the recon.

Thank You

Hi Till,

The UMUI at UM6.1 is not set up to allow compilation of the recon without compiling the model exec. If you don't wish to recompile the model again the easiest solution would be to edit the umuisubmit_compile qsub script in your ~/umui_runs/<job-id-dir> to add in the wall time manually. E.g.;

#PBS -l walltime=01:00:00

Then manually submit with qsub umuisubmit_compile

Not sure it matters but you have selected qsub for CRAY xT4 rather than qsub from XC30?

Hi Ros and Grenville,

thank you, I could submit the XJBFJ job now, following Ros' suggestion.

Grenville, in the UMUI window subindep_JobRes for my XJBFJ, I've ticked:
'qsub' for PBS Pro (Cray XC30). Is that not right?
