Implicit error when changing the PE_LAYOUT
Dear Madam/Sir, After I changed the PE_LAYOUT, the job was terminated due to unknown reasons. Any idea about this? Attached please kindly find the error message reprot. Here is the procedure I followed ./create_newcase --case ~/cases/FW1850_PE --compset FW1850 --res f09_f09_mg17 --machine tetralith ./xmlchange NTASKS_ATM=128 ./xmlchange NTASKS_CPL=2 ./xmlchange NTASKS_LND=1 ./xmlchange NTASKS_ICE=1 ./xmlchange NTASKS_OCN=1 ./xmlchange NTASKS_ROF=1 ./xmlchange NTASKS_GLC=1 ./xmlchange NTASKS_WAV=1 ./case.setup ./ ./case.submit Best regards, Xiang-Yu Li

The FW case at f09_f09_mg17 is a rather large model, along with the atm component it includes a land model and a coupler.  You are specifying way too few processes for those components.   I would suggest changing all components to have 120 tasks:

./xmlchange NTASKS=128

and trying again.   That should work but is still very small, if you have access to more processors you may want to use them, try 1024 for example.

Thanks a lot, Jedwards. I will eventually push to 1024 CPUs for the production run. For now, I am playing around with the optimum PE-LAYOUT. I checked the Run Time for each component (CPL, ATM, LAND, ...) and found that the ATM module takes up most of the CPU time. So I designed a PE-LAYOUT according to the following Run Time statistics. It seems that assign 1024 CPUs for all the modules will waste a lot of CPU resources? TOT Run Time: 27680.976 seconds 892.935 seconds/mday 0.27 myears/wday CPL Run Time: 14.893 seconds 0.480 seconds/mday 492.72 myears/wday ATM Run Time: 27405.343 seconds 884.043 seconds/mday 0.27 myears/wday LND Run Time: 126.022 seconds 4.065 seconds/mday 58.23 myears/wday ICE Run Time: 5.684 seconds 0.183 seconds/mday 1291.01 myears/wday OCN Run Time: 0.430 seconds 0.014 seconds/mday 17053.84 myears/wday ROF Run Time: 10.341 seconds 0.334 seconds/mday 709.61 myears/wday GLC Run Time: 2.768 seconds 0.089 seconds/mday 2651.04 myears/wday WAV Run Time: 0.000 seconds 0.000 seconds/mday 0.00 myears/wday ESP Run Time: 0.000 seconds 0.000 seconds/mday 0.00 myears/wday CPL COMM Time: 384.699 seconds 12.410 seconds/mday 19.07 myears/wday
