Automatic archiving for the nesting suite

Dear NCAS,
I'm running the UM nesting suite but I am constantly running out of disk space on ARCHER. I have a GA7 suite which archives automatically to the RDF, but the nesting suite I have doesn't have the same options in the rose gui. Is there a simple way to get this working on ARCHER? My nesting suite is u-bn874.
Many thanks.

Hi Peter,

Nesting suites archive in a different way to standard UM suites like GA7.
Your suite does appear to have archive settings for ARCHER; I just need to remind myself how the overrides hang together and will get back to you.

Hi Peter,

So all you should need to do is specify what you want archived (LBC creation, start dump, fieldsfiles) for each of driving model and resolutions. For the driving model see panel Driving model setup → dm_arch and similarly for each nested resolution in the config setup panels.

Default settings for NCAS should be picked up via overrides and your data will be copied to /nerc/n02/n02/$USER/$ROSE_SUITE_NAME/

Actually, in ~roses/<SUITEID>/app/archive/opt you'll also need to change the command-format= in the 3 files rose-app-cb.conf, rose-app-ff.conf and rose-app-ic.conf.

Change it to use rsync:

command-format=rsync -L %(sources)s %(target)s
