If history files and restart datasets are to be archived on the NCAR Mass Storage System, they will be transferred asynchronously to the MSS as they are completed. If namelist variable IRT is zero, history files will not be archived. Similarly, if RIRT is zero, restart files will not be archived. Mass Store pathnames for these transfers are automatically generated. History files will be archived in the Mass Store directory
/USERNAME/csm/CASEID/ccm3/hist,whereas restart files will be archived in the Mass Store directory
USERNAME is the upper-case equivalent of the user's login name, i.e., the user's root directory on the Mass Store System, and CASEID is the case identifier and is set via the namelist input. It is recommended that the user specify a non-blank write password using the namelist variable NSWRPS (see Table 2.5 ). File passwords are the only form of security available on the Mass Storage System. If the write password is not set, any other user can overwrite or change the files after they have been archived..
The size of history files may be reduced by using the namelist
packing feature (see NDENS in
Table 2.5 ). This feature is only
available on the NCAR Cray machines.
