Blogposts

We can publish blogs whenever we have something worth to be published. Just write the post and ask for a review. Note: it can be faster to publish a post from a helpdesk question right after finishing helping the user than to postpone it.

News

To communicate new work:

  1. update all documentation
  2. advertise on CMS news page

Help desk

There is now a roster for the help desk:

Monday Claire / Danny
Tuesday Scott
Wednesday Holger
Thursday Aidan
Friday Paola

Main tasks on "help desk day" are:

  1. Helpdesk
  2. Documentation / training update
  3. Other work

Priorities

We need to update our priorities regularly (~3 months). Update on Trello (and/or spreadsheet?) in consultation with the Infrastructure Committee. Communicate to CIs.

NCI Projects husbandry

  1. Every 6 months, send a list of members for each CoE projects to CIs. It's a reminder to clean up the memberships.
  2. Everyone is in charge of caring for one or several projects. See tables below.
  3. Need to keep track every week or so of the storage and SU usage (use ncimonitor)
  4. Contact users if people are on track to exceed storage
  5. Contact Aidan if people are on track to exceed SU.

NCI Projects

FlagshipC:

Project Lead CI CIs Description Carer
w48 Dietmar Dommenget Global scale decadal climate variability in a ACCESS hierarchy of climate models Holger

v45 Andy Hogg Mechanisms and attribution of past and future ocean circulation change Aidan
w97 Jason Evans Lisa Alexander, Andrew King Mechanisms and attribution of changes in Australian climate extremes Scott
w40 Todd Lane Atmospheric and oceanic processes and dynamics Scott
w58 Michael Reeder (superscience) The dynamics of subtropical anticyclones and the connection to drought, heatwaves and bushfires in southern Australia Holger
w35 Claire Carouge Terrestrial modelling within the Centre of Excellence regionalizing land surface processes Danny
access Claire Carouge or Scott Wales Group to run the ACCESS model and get access to some additional modules (useful for Python).

Requesting Met Office accounts for users

New accounts need a sponsor from their institution Sponsors are listed at https://code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/admin/wiki/GroupSponsors, Current ARCCSS sponsors are Scott, Claire and Holger Instructions for an account request are at https://code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/admin/wiki/NewUserChecklist

In brief, create a ticket at https:code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/admin/newticket?type=account-request with the user's name and email address, like https:code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/admin/ticket/758

conda environment

CMS maintains an anaconda installation on the NCI systems. To add new packages to the unstable analysis environments clone the | conda-envs repository. The master branches contains nothing but a README. The magic happens in other branches. There are two branches, analysis27}} and{{analysis3, for the python2 and python3 environments.

Checkout an analysis branch, add the package name to environment.yml and then commit your change. If the package is to be added to both branches checkout the other branch and make the same change and commit.

Next push altered branches to the repository. If both branches have been updated push both at the same time:

git push origin analysis27 analysis3

Pushing the branches will trigger testing and updating on the jenkins instance. The status of the conda environment update is viewable here:

https://accessdev.nci.org.au/jenkins/blue/pipelines?search=conda

Tips and tricks if problems with conda environments

  • Scott said: "for whatever reason (something to do with external c libraries I think) loading packages is sometimes order-dependent." If a package breaks the tests, put its import at the top of the list. It would then be loaded before whatever package is causing the issue.
