Request for my /work directory space to be expanded (currently 100GB)

Dear CMS team

I am leading the First Rains science team (Fran Morris, doing most of the ARCHER2 UM modelling) and am picking up more of the modelling work myself too. However, I am failing at the first hurdle as I have insufficient /work space to even complete the recon step of my simulations.

Please could my /work quota be expanded from the current 100GB it has to something similar to Fran’s (~3TB ) to enable running of large domain 2.2km configuration. However, if more is possible (~5TB ) that would be great, as I understand Fran is struggling with sufficient space to reconfigure LBCs for our simulations.

Many Thanks

Hi Neil,

Quota increased.

Can you please raise tickets via the NCAS modelling helpdesk in future: I activated your account the other day.


Hi Neil

5TB it is.
