Installing WRFChem on Shaheen

Here is an example build of WRFChem 3.8.x. We are going to use the Intel Compiler with Cray compiler wrappers, some prebuilt dependency libraries both installed on the system, both for convenience and performance.

Since we are compiling the code to run on compute nodes, we will either do this either on a login node that is Intel Haswell microarchitecture or our build script can be a jobscript which we can submit and build on a compute node. In the following we compile on cdl5 login node which has same processes same as the compute node microarchitecture.

Login to cdl5:

ssh cdl5

Load the environment:

module swap PrgEnv-cray PrgEnv-intel module load cray-netcdf cray-parallel-netcdf module load flex/2.6.4 bison/3.0.4 jasper module load craype-hugepages4M export NETCDF=$NETCDF_DIR export PNETCDF=$PARALLEL_NETCDF_DIR export WRFIO_NCD_LARGE_FILE_SUPPORT=1 export WRF_CHEM=1 export WRF_KPP=1 export FLEX_LIB_DIR=${FLEX_DIR}/lib export YACC="${BISON_DIR}/bin/yacc -d" export JASPERLIB=${JASPER_DIR}/lib export JASPERINC=${JASPER_DIR}/include

Go to source code folder and run ./configure. For parallelization with pure MPI, choose option 50 (dm | distributed memory) and if you plan to use OpenMP for multithreading on node, choose 51 (dm+sm | distributed memory+shared memory). Here we are choosing 50:

./configure checking for perl5... no checking for perl... found /usr/bin/perl (perl) Will use NETCDF in dir: /opt/cray/pe/netcdf/ Will use PNETCDF in dir: /opt/cray/pe/parallel-netcdf/ PHDF5 not set in environment. Will configure WRF for use without. building WRF with chemistry option building WRF with KPP chemistry option Will use 'time' to report timing information $JASPERLIB or $JASPERINC not found in environment, configuring to build without grib2 I/O... ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Please select from among the following Linux x86_64 options: 1.

For nesting, here we choose default option 1:

After the configuration is done, some more changes need to be include in the resulting configure.wrf


The above concludes the configuration part. We then move to a parallel build of the code.

You may track the status of build in compile.log.

Please be sure to reproduce the environment settings in your SLURM jobscript.

If there are any issue, please discuss on
