Running a 1.5km LAM on MONSooN I am getting an error:

  Signal received: SIGFPE - Floating-point exception
    Signal generated for floating-point exception:
      FP overflow

I can't see any more details about the error in the output (an no appearance of any of these error messages in previous tickets). Help is much appreciated.

Thanks, Andy

Sorry, the job is xfxkc

Hi Andy,

This job runs for 15 time steps before crashing. A floating point overflow has occurred in the calculation of WeightDcl?, which involves an exponentiation operation. This is very worrying. The only thing I can suggest is to repeat the run and see if it crashes at the same place.

Hi Andy,

You could increase the diagnostic output level. In Output choices select extra diagnostic messages. In scientific sections > section by sect > sect 13, push diag_prn button and then change from printing every 15 to every time step. Also select operational prints and tick both the "two norms" buttons.
