Real.exe output.


New member
I noticed that when i used ncdump on my wrfinput files, there is only one time stamp for the output. When i go to dimensions, the times variable shows UNLIMITED ; // (1 currently). Is there a way to have it so real.exe generates the output to have the time stamps equal to the amount of metgrid files i feed into real.exe?

I am also curious if wrf.exe references any of my metgrid input as well.
Please set the namelist options:

all_ic_times = .true. (under &time_control),

Then rerun real.exe. Note that in this case you will have multiple wrfinput files corresponding to your met_em files.
Thank you for the help!

Is this option a single answer, or do I need to repeat it for multiple domains? I ran real with this option as a single answer, and it only worked for the first domain, but when i tried to repeat it for multiple domains, it would raise an error.

Your RSL file indicates that this case runs successfully to the end. What errors did you see?

This option should work for all the model domains.
I received this error when i repeated the entry for all_ic_times:

module_io_quilt_old.F 2931 T
------ ERROR while reading namelist time_control ------
Maybe here?: io_form_boundary = 2,
Maybe here?: all_ic_times = .true.,.true.,
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
ERRORS while reading one or more namelists from namelist.input.

When I only filled the all_ic_times option once, this was my output.

If that is the case, then I may have a bug to report. Because I had filled that option once as you suggested, it only did all input times for the outer domain but not my inner domain.
