Suite won't restart

Cc: Platform: NEXCS

Sorry to bother you, but one of my suites (that has been perfectly stable till now) appears to have failed over the weekend. I have tried shutting down and restarting it, but get the error below. Can you advise on what has happened here? Might it be something to do with a storage issue (i.e. I have too much), either on NEXCS and/or JASMIN, as I haven't done any tidying/archiving for several days? Or is there a problem with the machine itself?

Pleae clean up your files; nexcs-n02 was at 100% capacity last night. Several job have failed as a result.

Apologies Grenville. I will clear up some space. From looking at it quickly, most of my stuff on /projects/nexcs-n02/cwilliams is actually within cylc-run, not (as I suspected) within sweet (which although being my output directory, only actually contains 10T). Am I right in thinking that all the suites in cylc-run here are simply copies of those in cylc-run of my home directory, and are therefore not actually needed (especially if I no longer need that suite)?

cylc-run under your home space just contains soft links to the cylc-run under /projects (check)

You need to clear up /projects to release space.

nexcs-n02 disk looks much healthier - I'll close this ticket
