Hardware Requirements

Post by SAM196 » Sun Feb 19, 2017 9:15 am

Hello

I am a Junior user of WRF,but i am going to use it for a forecasting project .but before start to work, i have to estimate the requirement hardware.however i reviewed the similar topics and got some ideas but need to know more.

1st question :is it possible to measure the hardware requirements by domain and grid point and forecast time? i mean for example my initial domain is 2500*2500 km (grid 25 km)and the result is 1500*1500 (grid 5km) and forecasting time is 72 hours .the run should not be take more than 2hours ,so how much cpu and RAM is required ?

2nd :if i want to go to grid 1km grid and 5days forecast how much should i add to my hardware ?
mostly i wonder if there is a way to calculate the required hardware by using output grid points resolution and forecasting time ?

Thanks

Hello Dominic
Actually we will use Cloud Server for our calculation,so There is no limitation (because we have to do it) and but of course better optimization is appreciated .
please let me know if more details is required?

Thanks
