Problem with cycling nesting suite

Reported by: tstein Owned by: um_support
Priority: normal Component: UM Model
Keywords: Cc:
Platform: UM Version:



I am currently running the nesting suite (suite ID u-av834) cycling through 28 36-hour forecasts. It runs through the first 2 days okay, but then queues too many tasks for day 3 and I have to wait to force those tasks to run - that's fine (or I can change suite.rc).

However, it is now stuck on a "housekeep" cycle for day 1, and will not proceed with any days beyond day 3.

Is there any way I can prevent the cycling to get stuck like this? Or to ensure that it will continue with the following days?

What do you mean by "stuck"?

You can reset the state of the housekeeping task to "succeeded" to allow the run to continue (it won't have done the housekeeping for that cycle 'though)

Hi Grenville,

The housekeep task was submitted 2 days ago and even though no tasks are ongoing, it will not be running. If I set it to "succeed" what will I miss? Is the housekeep task essential for me to use the output?

Housekeeping just clears up old files — setting it to succeeded means not running it in this case, so you will potentially have more files (leave-type files) in your disc space (on ARCHER and PUMA) than otherwise.
