[Ncep.list.fv3-announce] fv3gfs release beta test

Hi Jun;

I am about to head home for the day, but here are my comments so far, after
following the instructions for theia:

o The builds of models and remap codes completed successfully. One
suggestion might be to have the user specify 32 or 64-bit, and nh vs. hydro
in order to cut down compilation time by a factor of 4.

o The batch job attempting to run the model failed. Relevant lines in
err_theia are:

*+ cd /scratch4/NCEPDEV/stmp3/James.Rosinski/C96fv3gfs2016092900+ /bin/cp
/scratch4/NCEPDEV/stmp3/James.Rosinski/C96fv3gfs2016092900/.+ -prepend-rank
-np 288 ./fv3_gfs_nh.prod.32bit.x+ ERR=127+ export ERR+ err=127*
Looks like somehow "mpirun" was not found (note there is nothing in front
of "-prepend-rank"). FYI I use csh for my login shell--not sure if this is
behind the error. I had no modules loaded when submitting the job.

If  you'd like to examine the output you should have read access to it here
on theia:


More info tomorrow...
