185      <br>
186NetCDF4 allows for parallel I/O. Also, variables are not limited in
187size any more (i.e. arrays can be larger than 2GB). The new
188d3par-parameter <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">netcdf_data_format</span>.can be used to select among the different NetCDF file formats (<span style="font-style: italic;">1</span>: classic format, <span style="font-style: italic;">2</span>: 64-bit-offset format (this is now the default), <span style="font-style: italic;">3</span>: NetCDF4/HDF5 format, <span style="font-style: italic;">4</span>: NetCDF4 format with NF90_CLASSIC_MODEL bit set). Setting <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">netcdf_data_format</span> &gt; <span style="font-style: italic;">2</span>
189only affects 2d- and 3d-output, i.e. there is no parallel output for
190profiles, time series, spectra, and particles. Parallel output of
191particle data may realized in the future.<br>
192      <br>
193In case of parallel output, all PEs write into one file, which means that postprocessing the data with <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">combine_plot_fields</span>
194(merging data from single files - one per PE - into one file) is not
195neccessary. In this case, flag files are automatically set, telling <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">combine_plot_fields</span> that nothing is to be done.<br>
196      <br>
197Using NetCDF4 format requires a NetCDF4/HDF library. Respective
198settings for -I, -L, and -l compiler/loader options for the SGI-ICE at
199HLRN can be found in the new example configuration file <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">..../trunk/SCRIPTS/.mrun.config.imuk_ice2_netcdf4</span><br>
200      <br>
201      <span style="font-weight: bold;">Attention:</span><br>
202So far, NetCDF parallel I/O has only been tested a little. Further
203performance optimizations may be required, especially in case of large
204data sets (e.g. data chunking, or lustre file system settings with <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">lfs setstripe</span>). <span style="font-weight: bold;">Please report bugs and performance problems immediately!</span><br>
205      <br>
206      <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">combine_plot_fields</span> outputs cpu-time needed for file merging.<br>
207      <br>
208Modules to be loaded for compilation (mbuild) or job execution (mrun) can/should now be given in the configuration file (<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">.mrun.config</span>) using variable <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">modules</span>. Example:<br>
209      <br>
210      <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">&nbsp;&nbsp; %modules&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ifort/11.0.069:netcdf&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; lcsgih parallel</span><br>
211      <br>
212This method replaces the (undocumented) <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">mpilib</span>-variable.<br>
213      <br>
214      <span style="font-weight: bold;">WARNING:</span><br>
215      <span style="font-weight: bold;">All fixed settings of modules in the scripts mbuild, mrun, and subjob have been removed! Please set the <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">modules</span> variable appropriately and remove the mpilib variable in your configuration file.<br>
216      <br>
217</span>Compilation time can be reduced be using parallel make. The
218number of allowed simultaneous compiler calls (threads) is set in the
219configuration file using variable <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">mopt</span>, e.g.<br>
220      <br>
221      <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">&nbsp;&nbsp; %mopts&nbsp; -j:4 &nbsp; lcsgih parallel</span><br>
222      <br>
223allows a maximum of 4 routines to be compiled simultaneously (provided
224that the makefile does not show any dependencies between these
225routines).<span style="font-weight: bold;"><br>

1120<h2><a name="Kapitel2.0"></a>2.0&nbsp; How
1121to change the source
1122code and how to document modifications<br>
1123</h2>Currently
1124(Sep 23rd, 2009), only selected users are allowed to commit changes to
1125the repository. Rules given below are preliminary, until we have switched to the "trac"-System.<br>
1126<br>
1127<ol>
1128  <li>Change source code in your current working copy. Document changes in the respective file headers unter "<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">Current revisions:</span>".
1129Additionally, document all changes in a local file (e.g.
1130~/palm/current_version/CURRENT_MODIFICATIONS), including the files that
1131have been changed. Classify changes in three cases, new (N), changed
1132(C), and bugfix (B). <span style="font-weight: bold;">Try to be as short and as precise as possible in describing the changes!</span><br>
1133    <br>
1134  </li>
1135  <li>Test the changed version, unless it works sufficiently.<br>
1136    <br>
1137  </li>
1138 
1139  <li>Commit the changes to the repository<br>
1140    <br>
1141    <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">&nbsp;&nbsp; svn commit -m "message string" trunk<br>
1142    </span><br>
1143where "<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">message string</span>" is a short, <span style="font-weight: bold;">meaningful</span> summary of the changes.<br>
1144    <br>
1145Alternatively, in case that you have made quite a lot of changes, you
1146can also give the contents of your file CURRENT_MODIFICATIONS as the
1147log message:<br>
1148    <br>
1149    <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">&nbsp;&nbsp; svn commit -F CURRENT_MODIFICATIONS trunk</span><br>
1150    <br>
1151  </li>
1152
1153  <li>Enter the changes into the technical documentation (under <span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">.../trunk/DOC/tec/technical_documentation.html</span>).<br>
1154    <br>
1155  </li>
1156  <li>Move the change comments in the file headers from "Current
1157revisions:" to "Former revisions:". Set the current svn id in front of
1158that.<br>
