ncl on HECToR?

Reported by: iamack Owned by: lois
Component: Diagnostics Keywords: ncl HECToR
Cc: Platform:
UM Version:



Is there any possibility of the NCAR Command Language, ncl, being installed on HECToR? I will be generating possibly TBs of hourly data with the UM which can be distilled down to a small fraction of that with an ncl program. However, without ncl on HECToR I will have to transfer the whole data volume to our local system.

Hello Ian,

I think that the one thing you could say about HECToR is that it is useless for serial processing so putting ncl on HECToR would not be a sensible option at all. What we are trying to get is a post processing service installed as part of the HECToR service which would do all the serial work needed for NERC modelling. We have been discussing this for so long and NERC say they have the moeny but it is so frustrating that nothing seems to get done. Various options have been proposed and we are now waiting for EPCC to respond and NERC to say yes! When this sytem is finally available then this system would be the place for ncl and all the data conversion you are having to do.

We were supposed to have this post processing service in place by now so I will try agin to get some action on this matter. CASCADE urgently need this for their data and the oceanographers are pressing for this for their high resolution experiments so there are many users waiting for this.

More news soon I hope.
