How to check the experiment configuration

To check the configuration of the experiment, use the command:

autosubmit check EXPID

EXPID is the experiment identifier.

It checks experiment configuration and warns about any detected error or inconsistency. It is used to check if the script is well-formed. If any template has an inconsistency it will replace them for an empty value on the cmd generated. Options:

usage: autosubmit check [-h -nt] expid

  expid                 experiment identifier
  -nt                   --notransitive
                            prevents doing the transitive reduction when plotting the workflow
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

Example:

autosubmit check cxxx

How to use check in running time:

In jobs_cxxx.conf , you can set check(default true) to check the scripts during autosubmit run cxx.

There are two parameters related to check: .. code-block:: ini

CHECK = TRUE or FALSE or ON_SUBMISSION SHOW_CHECK_WARNINGS = TRUE or FALSE

Check = TRUE is used to substitute empty variables (if the template exists) Check = on_submission is used to substitute empty variables if the template will be generated on running_time by another job. Check = FALSE is used to disable this substitution.

SHOW_CHECK_WARNINGS = False is used for avoid a big text warn message.

For example:

[LOCAL_SETUP]
FILE = filepath_that_exists
PLATFORM = LOCAL
WALLCLOCK = 05:00
CHECK = TRUE
SHOW_CHECK_WARNINGS = TRUE
...
[SIM]
FILE = filepath_that_no_exists_until_setup_is_processed
PLATFORM = bsc_es
DEPENDENCIES = LOCAL_SETUP SIM - 1
RUNNING = chunk
WALLCLOCK = 05:00
CHECK = on_submission
SHOW_CHECK_WARNINGS = False
...
