Description

Hi all,

Sorry to bother you again, but please can someone tell me what JULES/JASMIN is playing at this time?!

I'm trying to resubmit my suite, just like I have successfully done several times before. I have removed my cylc-run directory on PUMA, and have made sure that there are no jules.exe processes running still. I have logged out and logged in again, both PUMA and JASMIN. When I submit my suite, however, I get:

[FAIL] [FAIL] 2017-06-30T17:47:45+0100 [Errno 39] Directory not empty: 'log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01'

If I log onto JASMIN and try to remove the entire cylc-run directory as well, I can't:

[cwilliams2011@jasmin-sci2 ~]$ rm -r cylc-run/
rm: cannot remove `cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01': Directory not empty

However, if I look in this directory, it IS empty:

[cwilliams2011@jasmin-sci2 ~]$ ls cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01
[cwilliams2011@jasmin-sci2 ~]$

and if I try to remove whatever it thinks is in this directory, it tells me it is empty:

[cwilliams2011@jasmin-sci2 ~]$ rm cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01/*
rm: cannot remove `cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01/*': No such file or directory

If I try to remove just this 01 directory, it again tells me it's not empty:

[cwilliams2011@jasmin-sci2 ~]$ rm -r cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01
rm: cannot remove `cylc-run/u-am232/log.20170630T120510Z/job/1/jules/01': Directory not empty

What's going on this time, and why does JASMIN hate me so much?!

Hi all,

Further to the above, it appears to have fixed itself over the weekend. It now submits fine. Any ideas as to what happened?

Hi Charlie,

It's impossible to say, but the symptoms you describe are similar to those I've occasionally encountered on Monsoon where the filesystem is exceedingly slow to release a file lock.

Glad to hear it's sorted itself out over the weekend.

Cheers,
Ros.
