porting 6.1 UM job from Met Office to Hector?

Reported by: mjm Owned by: willie
Component: UM Model Keywords: Hector,
Cc: simon.tett@… Platform:
UM Version: 6.1


We are trying to port a job to Hector from a basis file of a MetOffice? job.

(Our job is xedff, directly after loading the basis file.)

Is there any guidance available about how to port a MetOffice? job to Hector, please?

Hi Mike,

First be aware that there are some standard UM6.1 jobs in HECToR - see user umui jobs xdgn.

Once you have uploaded your basis file you need to change

  • the general details page
    • you may need to select IO control > external control and select no external control
  • on Target machine, select other and
  • on Sub indep > Job submission select qsub, 3600 for the time limit and 2 cores per node
  • follow the useful tips at

Then you will need to ensure that the following files are present on HECToR

  • hand edits
  • user STASH masters
  • ancillary files
  • spectral files

and of course, the mod sets, since it is 6.1.

If you need further help with this please let me know.
