Porting suite from Monsoon to Archer

Reported by: xd904476 Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords: port from Monsoon
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version:


Hi, I would like to edit a Monsoon suite so that I can run it on Archer. The suit ID is u-as37*, an historical master suite.
Do you have any available references on the changes need to do so? Have you already ported any u-as37[12345]? If not could you give us some advise on how to port this suite to Archer?

Hi Daniela,

We've not ported to my knowledge any of the u-as37[12345] suites. The nearest I can see we've ported is u-as037 the PI control version (has the same grandparent suite).

I'll put together a summary of changes you'll need to make and get back to you tomorrow. The majority of site settings are done for you by selecting the Archer site option in "Machine options" panel.

Hi Daniella,

It's difficult to put together a definitive list as suites vary in set up, but basic changes required as a starter.

suite conf

Machine Options: Select site as ARCHER and change Science config to GC3-PrgEnv/2.0/33979
Domain Decomposition: ARCHER has 24 course per node rather than 36

platform_config_dir: ncas-xc30-cce

meta: /home/ros/moci/CMIP6_rose-meta/um-atmos/HEAD

Obviously a lot of input path names will need to change.
A diff of the changes I had to make for u-as037 can be seen here.

hopefully this will help you find the equivalent files on ARCHER. You can also checkout and look at u-as037 in rose edit to help you.

Ignore all the postproc/fcm_make_pp changes for now. Get the model running first and then I can tell you the easy way to upgrade postprocessing for ARCHER assuming you will be wanting to archive your data to the RDF/JASMIN.

Hope that gets you stared. Let me know if you need further advice along the way.
