ROMS hangs up reading input file

#1 Post by joaob »

Hi forum,

I've been facing a possible bug with serial and OpenMP ROMS. The model hangs up when reading the input file. This doesn't happen when I compile the model with MPI. More precisely, the model hangs in the following section of the code in read_phypar.f90 (the problematic line is marked with **):

Code: Select all

!  Read in physical model parameters. Then, load input data into module.
!  Take into account nested grid configurations.
      DO WHILE (.TRUE.)
        ** READ (inp,'(a)',ERR=10,END=20) line
        status=decode_line(line, KeyWord, Nval, Cval, Rval)
        IF ( THEN
          SELECT CASE (TRIM(KeyWord))
            CASE ('TITLE')
I've run it through GDB and the trace is the following:

I'm usinf Ifort but the same thing happens with gfortran. Compiler versions are:
ifort (IFORT) 20190206
GNU Fortran (Ubuntu 7.3.0-27ubuntu1~18.04) 7.3.0
I've checked that this simple fortran code (compiled with ifort) can read the input file line by line:

Code: Select all

    program Console1
    implicit none
    integer :: il, ierr
    character(256) :: gchar
    do while (ierr.eq.0)
      read(15,'(A)',ERR=10,END=20) gchar
!      il=len_trim(gchar)
!      print *, il
      print *, gchar
10  WRITE (*,*) 'ERROR READING', gchar
20  CLOSE (15)

    end program Console1
So I can really figure what is the problem. Any help would be highly appreciated.
Best regards,

Re: ROMS hangs up reading input file

Code: Select all

gdb ./romsG
If the model was not compiled for MPI, you should do this instead:

Code: Select all

gdb ./romsG <
and the model will read from the standard input.

Thanks, Kate. Don't know how I missed that.
