NetCDF: NC_MAX_VARS

Postby mdvorak » Fri Oct 28, 2011 7:41 pm

Hi,
I have run into a NetCDF problem as I increased the number of k points. The last few lines of my log file are:

<10m-04s> P23: BSK |##### | [028%] 08m-29s(E) 29m-43s(X)


<13m-17s> P01: BSK |####### | [035%] 11m-48s(E) 33m-03s(X)
P01: [ERROR] STOP signal received while in :[07.01] Main loop
P01: [ERROR][NetCDF] NetCDF: NC_MAX_VARS exceeded


I have overrun some limit in NetCDF. Am I using too many k points?

Thanks,

Try running with the -S option. The code will fragment the BS database reducing the number of VARS.

How many?
The MAX_VARS limit is 8192 if I remember properly.
