UM Version: 10.7


Dear CMS,

I'm trying to port a Met Office GC3.1 SenarioMIP suite u-bj611 to Monsoon. I compared it with a suite on Monsoon and modified it. My suite id is u-br927. When I tried to run it it returns an error like this;

RosePopenError?: cylc validate -o /working/d03/myosh/jtmp/tmp.wlcFOaxnKp/tmpmUonpv —strict u-br927, stderr=Jinja2Error

The attached image contains a little more details.

This is similar problem as #3189 so is it related to the land cover data? But there is no v2 data for SSP126 on Monsoon…

ll /projects/ancils/cmip6/ancils/n96e/ssp126/LandCover
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 hdyson ancils 4096 Dec  6 14:37 v1

Could the data placed there? Or should I do anything else to conquer this?

Hi Masaru,

There's usually more information about the error further down the traceback. This type of error usually points to a syntax error in the suite.rc file.

HI Ros.,

If you saw the attached image that is all I got in that window. I can't find an error message in


I can't tell what's wrong in the suite.rc file. Could you please check the job directory or tell me where/what I should check?

In any case, I need a v2 land cover file, don't I? Maybe I can use historical or time slice data instead of SSP data?

Hi Masaru,

Sorry, for some reason it was slow showing me there was an attachment.
Ok so the problem is you have added a new site but not added an appropriate site file for it in the site directory. The error message is saying it can't find a file called site/meto_monsoon.rc where all the platform specific settings are found.

For consistency with other Monsoon suites I would change the value of SITE that you added in the metadata file to be monsoon not meto_monsoon. Then you need to add a file called monsoon.rc in the site directory. Usually it's easiest to copy the meto_cray.rc and modify as appropriate.

What Monsoon suite have you been comparing with?

Hi Ros.,

I initially followed the change set in u-ar930. But the UM version is slightly different and rose edit look a bit different as well. So I searched vn10.7 suite for Monsoon and found u-ay492.

So maybe I can copy meto_cray.rc and meto_cray_restart.rc as monsoon.rc and monsoon_restart.rc in br927 and apply the differences between cray and monsoon in ar930.

The only difference between meto_cray.rc and meto_monsoon.rc (both in ar930) is this line;

<             batch system = slurm
>             batch system = background

The line "batch system = slurm" is in meto_cray.rc of br927 as well so I can simply change this to "background".

There is no difference between meto_cray_restart.rc and meto_monsoon_restart.rc so I don't need to modify monsoon_restart.rc at all, right?

I'll try and see what happens.
