Deletion of superseded restart dumps

Reported by: iamack Owned by: jeff

UM Version: 4.5


I'm running the vn4.5 UM on HECToR in Gregorian calendar mode with climate meaning, which requires that restart dumps be written every 24 hours. Although I have selected 'Delete superseded restart dumps' in the umui (Main Switch + General Questions), the daily restart files are accumulating in my DATAM directory and are never being deleted, presumably because there is no archiving. Is there a way to force their removal? If not, a long run is going to generate a huge amount of output.

Hi Ian

Yes this can be done, you need to include a source mod


and a script mod


You will need to turn on full archiving otherwise all your files will be deleted. This will then move all your archived files to directory $DATAM/archive. This directory can be overridden be defining environment variable ARCHIVE_DIR in the umui. Look at puma umui job xctld for a 4.5 archiving example.

Let me know if you have any problems.
