Increase disk quota on ARCHER

Hi Grenville,

I would appreciate if you could consider raising my disk quota on Archer work space (if possible with 5 more Gb). I am working with Leighton to run the ACURE PPE, and also postprocessing the files on espp1 and then transferring the data to Jasmin. This requires a multiplication of the same files, as we are copying the suite files and then converging them into .pp format. I had issues last week with disk quota limit, and my suite failed, with multiple members being unable to resync. This means that I had to rerun those members and I am consuming the project's allocated CPU.

SAFE reports that you have used ~7TB from a quota of 15TB. I'm not sure why you are copying the suite files and then …?

Hi Grenville,

Now there are indeed only about 7Tb used. I have deleted the data that I transferred across to Jasmin. 12 more members of the PPE are currently running, so there will be around 9TB used.

We copy the data so that we will do a postprocessing on it (from field files we convert to .pp files). Leighton has shared with me his script. I believe the reason behind it is to keep the original files until we are sure that everything has been converted properly and transferred across.

I think I can manage with the quota I have now, but I will have to keep an eye on it, so that my model doesn't fail due to lack of memory.
If you decide to increase the quota it should only be temporarily, until we finish running the PPE - I guess by the end of the month. After that I can go back to a smaller amount, I won't be needing to run and keep so much data.
