Doubt whether ROMs is running successfully or not

#1 Post by prakrati »

Hello
I ran ROMS on 512 ranks. In the output file no error message is displayed. But in the end of the output file total time is displayed as asterisks. On the other hand after displaying time taken by individual rank total time is displayed. Here I am pasting appropriate parts of output file. Can you suggest possible reasons for this ? If total time is displayed at one place and not at other can we assume that code has run correctly ?

/*Place where total time is displayed*/

Node #368 CPU: 201787.847
Node #336 CPU: 201827.979
Node #304 CPU: 201818.176
Node #314 CPU: 201817.545
Total: 103328401.295

You get asterisks when you overflow your format statement. For instance, if I ask for three digits in my format statement, then want to print 1355, it will give three asterisks.

As for running correctly, that might be easier to tell from say the history files. Do they look reasonable?
