output 32bit UM pp-files

Description

Hi,

I use ff2pp on Hector to convert my 64bit UM pp-files to 32bit before scp'ing them to our local machines. Is there a way to make the UM output to 32bit to save me converting the ppfiles manually (and save disk space/quota)?

I have tried Packing Profiles 2 and 5 but upon opening the ppfiles in xconv they still seem to be in 64bit format.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott

You can't change the format the UM writes in, but you can automatically convert the files when it archives the data. At the moment a branch would need to be written to do this, I can show you how if you want.

Changing the packing profiles doesn't change the UM format but it does pack the data contained in the UM file, so the file are still in 64 bit format but are smaller because of the packed data.

Jeff.

Hi Jeff,

I'll carry on using ff2pp for now and investigate your suggestion at a later date.

Thanks,

Scott
