Nesting Suite UM frame job error

Reported by: dsergeev Owned by: willie
Priority: high Component: UM Model
Keywords: nesting suite Cc:
Platform: Monsoon2 UM Version: 10.2



In one of my UM runs, I decided to increase the run length from 48 to 72 hours. Almost everything works fine, but the um_frame job fails at the forecast period 9 (see screenshot).

Below is the stderr message of that frame job:

Warning in umPrintMgr: umPrintLoadOptions : Failed to get filename for IO control file from environment
Warning in umPrintMgr: umPrintSetLevel : Problem reading $PRINT_STATUS, output level will stay as    2

What could be the reason of this error? I've tried restarting the suite from scratch a couple of times, but it fails nonetheless. From time to time this error appears even at the first forecast period.

Hi Denis,

Is this still an issue? The name list file has been deleted.

Hi Willie,

I'm running the suite for different cases at the moment, so I'm going to close this issue for now. That problem seemed to be persistent, so if I decide to make longer runs again and get the same error, I'll reopen the ticket.

Hi Willie,

I needed to rerun one of my cases for a longer period, and I ran into the same error.

Should I change the frequency of LBC files somehow?

I think the problem is that max_input_files is set to 60 in src/utility/createbc/lbc_output_control_mod.f90, which is reached at frame009 stage (see /projects/accacia/deser/cylc-run/u-ai883/work/20070119T1200Z/NorwegianSea_km2p2_ukv_default_um_frame_009/

Now the suite id is u-ai883, and the forecast cycle is 20070119T1200Z.

Could you please look into this?

Best regards,

Hi Denis,

CreateBC is designed to handle up to 1,000 files so it's not that. I'll look further …

Hi Denis,

Oh dear, you're quite right. The UM10.2 Create BC can only do 60 input files; the UM10.3 version can do 1,000 files.

The solution I think is to change, in rose edit, the um_createbc meta data to um-createbc/vn10.3, and then run again.
