What files can I safely delete on PUMA?

There is limited disk space available on PUMA, so all users need to clear up files in their home directories regularly to stay within their quota.

  • Extract directories:

Submission of UM jobs via the UMUI and UM suites through Rose/Cylc, generate lots of files which mount up quickly and can be safely deleted as follows:

For the UMUI, job extract directories usually under ~/um/um_extracts or ~/FCM_extracts can be deleted. They will be recreated as required.

For Rose suites the extract directory ~/cylc-run/<suite-id>/share/fcm_make_um/.fcm_make can be deleted safely. If you are running a coupled suite there will also be a corresponding extract directory for the NEMO build (e.g. ~/cylc-run/<suite-id>/share/fcm_make_ocean/.fcm_make)

  • Working copies of branches:

Once all local changes to a branch have been committed you should delete the working copy and reference the branch in your job/suite by its repository URL. (e.g fcm:um.xm-br/dev/marcstringer/vn10.6_fix_OpenMP_nice_use)
