Error from routine: portio2a:flush_unit_buffer


I was running the UM suite u-cq224 in Archer2. It ran successfully for 3 months, after which the job aborted with the following error message.

FLUSH_UNIT_BUFFER: Error Flushing Buffered Data

FLUSH_UNIT_BUFFER: Status is 1.0

FLUSH_UNIT_BUFFER: Length Requested was 4194304

FLUSH_UNIT_BUFFER: Length written was 8192

???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!! ERROR ???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!
? Error code: 1
? Error from routine: portio2a:flush_unit_buffer
? Error message: Failed in output_buffer()
? Error from processor: 0
? Error number: 29

The same suite is running successfully beyond 3 months in Monsoon HPC. So I believe it’s a machine dependent error/(possible fine differences in the rose-suite.conf file inputs) and has probably nothing to do with any issues in the suite/source code.

Please could you help me solve this issue.


Hi Timmy

Looks like you exceeded the /work quota - it’s increased to 1TB.


That’s great! Thank you so much Grenville.
