How to archive an experimentΒΆ

To archive the experiment, use the command:

autosubmit archive EXPID

EXPID is the experiment identifier.


this command calls implicitly the clean command. Check clean command documentation.


experiment will be unusable after archiving. If you want to use it, you will need to call first the unarchive command


usage: autosubmit archive [-h] expid

  expid                 experiment identifier

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit


autosubmit archive cxxx


Archived experiment will be stored as a tar.gz file on a folder named after the year of the last COMPLETED file date. If not COMPLETED file is present, it will be stored in the folder matching the date at the time the archive command was run.
