Problems compiling GO6 suite

Reported by: cthomas Owned by: ros

UM Version:



I have made a copy of the GO6 suite u-ag051 on puma - my version is called u-be802.

When running this suite, two tasks fail:

  • fcm_make_ocean has a disk quota exceeded error:
    Broken pipe at /home/fcm/fcm-2017.10.0/bin/../lib/FCM/Util/ line 289.
    [FAIL] /home/cthomas/cylc-run/u-be802/share/fcm_make_ocean/.fcm-make/cache/extract/cice/0/cice: cannot create

  • fcm_make_pp has the following output:

    [FAIL] svn: E200009: Could not display info for all targets because some targets don't exist

For the first error could you please increase my disk quota on puma? Alternatively, can I use the scratch space to compile it?

For the second error I have set POSTPROC to false in rose-suite.conf, but I don't know if that's the best solution.


PS does it matter that I checked out revision 35017 instead of 28371, which is recommended here?

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the delay, do you still need help with this?

Hi Ros,

No problem about the delay - that would be great, thanks! In particular, the disk space is probably the most important part.

Hi Chris,

Andy has increased your PUMA disk space and also created you a $SCRATCH space. So if you add export SCRATCH=/export/puma/data-01/cthomas to your ~/.profile on PUMA you can then use $SCRATCH space to compile the model by uncommenting the following line in the suite.rc file:

script = "rose task-run --verbose --define=fast-dest-root-orig=$SCRATCH --define='args=--archive --ignore-lock'"

Log out and back into PUMA to pick up the profile change before you run.

If you don't want to use postproc then switching it off by setting POSTPROC=false is fine.
