FTP ssthr intermittent cannot download problem

Post by theocarter2911 »

Hi All,

A few of my runs are stopping due to my system not being able to fetch via ftp the rtgssthr files from the ncep site. Below full error message:

* Locating ssthr files for model static surface fields

Initiating FTP connection to ftp.ncep.noaa.gov

-> Attempting to acquire /pub/data/nccf/com/gfs/prod/sst.20170301/rtgssthr_grb_0.083.grib2 Timeout at /usr/share/perl5/Net/FTP.pm line 491

Is anyone else experiencing this? For me this is a new issue, the system has been running fine for years pretty much as is.

Best regards,
Theo

Just a note - I have not upgraded to the latest version which only has the arw core, as the nmm core fares better wind-wise over my local area in certain situations than arw.

I saw that several times. When that happen, I just turn off ssthr from initial conditions. But I know this might not be ideal fix.
