Changing archiving dump frequency

Reported by: s1895566 Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: archiving dump frequency
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2

I am trying to change the archiving dump frequency to say 28 hours in my suite u-bu665. However, I can only see the options of Monthly, Seasonal, Yearly, and Timestamps in postproc → Atmosphere → Archiving.

I selected Timestamps and set variable arch_timestamps as something like 1-2_4,1-3_8,1-4_12,1-5_16,1-6_20 etc. to match the regex requested. However, I was unable to generate any dump files using this method. Did I do something wrong? Thanks!

u-bu665 is configured to write monthly dumps - I am not sure what you expect to archive?

I changed it back to timestamps, and I intend to get dumps every 28 hours. However, I was unable to do so.

set dumpfreqim = 28, dump_frequency_units = 1 - that will generate dumps at 28hr intervals. I am not sure how this will interact with other settings (in postproc for example)

Changing dumpfreqim and dump_frequency_units doesn't seem to have any effect on the dump files.

With dumpfreqim = 28, dump_frequency_units = 1, my copy of your suite created the following dumps:


These are 28hr dumps - is this not what you need?

Yes. I found them. Thanks.
