killed while running megan_bio_emiss

This post was from a previous version of the WRF&MPAS-A Support Forum. New replies have been disabled and if you have follow up questions related to this post, then please start a new thread from the forum home page.

I was runing megan_bio_emiss and anthro_emis one after the other but megan_bio_emis got killed during the process
while anthro_emis gave this error: mapper: No valid maps

and I have tried to check out for what could have been responsible to no avail
the attached files are the input and output files for both anthro_emiss and megan_bio_emis

I love that someone will help me out

with regards

Hi Juli,

For the MEGAN error, if it was killed, you are likely running into a memory issue - are you submitting this as a job or running it from the command line/login node?

For the Anthro error, it looks like you do not have your input file set up correctly, you are using a single character for the arrow (i.e., →), but it instead looks like it needs to be two symbols (->, i.e, dash + greater than, see the README).

Thank you for your response
For the Megan I was running on the command line while the program killed on the process
but lately I run it with job submission scripts but only produced wrfbiochemi_do1 for the first domain but failed to generate results for the second domain
So I was trying to modify the job script so that I can set the correct path for the output result as shown in the attached file bellow

on the antro_emis, I changes the sign to -> and run it on the command line but the error shown in the attached file bellow

your comments and assistance is appreciated

thank you

Hi Juli,

For anthro, it is telling you what is wrong:

Failed to open /mnt/lustre/users/jakinyoola/WRFCHEMSETUP/ANTHRO/src/
No such file or directory

For megan, can you provide the log?

Thank you so much sir
the output file for the megan_bio_emiss when I run on command line
is attached bellow

The program killed in the process
