6 Intel compiler 11.0.83 Details moved to NewSun_IntelCompiler_11.0.83 re-download & rebuild of v11 will be attempted by Tim Pugh and Justin Freeman. If newly built, it will be compatible with openMPI and there will be no need for MPI/Sun. - No report on this this week. ilia,rab, group
Question: Will executable built with identical compiler options that is non-machine specific), identical compiler version, openMPI library give bit identical result when copied between rainin-ngamai-solar

8 Source Code for VAR See 10 azs
9 Source Code for OPS See 10 azs

ACTION (8-10) Prepare for migration. Monitor reliability of access-svn server.
.
11 ~access directory Goal of having interoperability with raijin is not straightforward, particularly with executable and libraries. Need to handle case by case. $HOST or $MACH subdirectory required in some instances.access.admin

ACTION Workaround exist, but the earlier the migration the better
.
16 CAP program on ngamai vn8.1 now available and set up on Raijin. Sufficient for time being; not urgent to port to ngamai, as we can create ancils on raijin and copy to ngamai. Martin
ACTION No action required.
.
17 Re-compile/build UM 7.5/7.6 Executables for APS1 - Global, Regional, Access-C ... Documentation of build procedure, UI job id, wiki page of build or similar to UKMO Parallel suite page.

28 ACCESS systems/suites not synchronous with operational system Will not be able to address this as part of porting project. Will need to wait until APS3 ROSE based systems.

ACTION None for now.

MISCELLANEOUS ISSUES

  • Hyperthreading, Turboboost, thread-settings for openmp libraries. These have been noted, for both ngamai and raijin, will be investigated; they're not critical to operational porting activity.
  • nci trac wiki was down for a day or two. Not sure if it is related to nci vmware issue, or due to disk full. Question was asked about available diskspace for the wiki.
