Disc quota exceeded on RDF

Sorry to bother you, but one my suites (u-ba469, which is the official CMIP6 mid-Holocene suite) has failed roughly ¾ through at the postproc (both nemo and cice) stage, giving me a "disc quota exceeded" error. Admittedly I currently do have quite a lot of data on the RDF, but it is all currently in progress so I need all of it. Would I be able to have my quota increased, just to allow me to finish my hundred year run (only 25 more years to go)?

Hi Charlie,

The RDF quota has been increased. It will take a little while for it to come into effect.

Very many thanks. How much space do I now have?

Sorry Ros, but the above suite has again failed several years further on, again giving me a "disc quota exceeded" error. Is it possible that, although you increased my quota last week, it has again filled up because I am producing so much data? I realise I already have a huge amount of there, but would it be possible to have my quota increased even further, just so I can finish the simulation (12 years to go)?

To give you a rough idea, the above suite (which is the CMIP6 mid-Holocene production run) is generating about 369 Gb per year, so I need at least 4.5 Tb more in order to finish the final ~12 years.

I promise I will be clearing a lot of my data off the RDF in the very near future, because I will be moving a lot of it onto JASMIN, and then onto elastic tape (as discussed with Grenville on Tuesday). We have already requested our own PMIP group workspace on JASMIN, so as soon as we get this I can ease off on the RDF.

Many thanks,

Hi Charlie,

I have temporarily increased your RDF quota to 70Tb.
