Description

This is a feature request, not a bug.

CMIP5 data has several scalar (0-D) variables; for example, zostoga, global average thermosteric sea level change. It is entirely normal for such a variable to repeat its values in a long time series. So the F3200 “suspecting a replicated record” warning is not useful in this case.

I would like the “replicated record” check to be disabled for scalar variables. Just this feature would reduce the number of spurious warning messages we get by thousands per experiment.

History

#1 Updated by Heinz-Dieter Hollweg about 8 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Assignee set to Heinz-Dieter Hollweg

Testing for replicated records is done by default.
This could only be disabled by the configuration option
IGNORE_REPLICATED_RECORDS assigning a comma-sep-list of variables.

This feature is now expanded.

a) disabling for every variable just specify:
IGNORE_REPLICATED_RECORDS
b) disabling for specific variables provided by a comma separated list of names.
e.g. IGNORE_REPLICATED_RECORDS=tas,pr
c) disabling for each 0-D variable by assigning '0-D'
e.g. IGNORE_REPLICATED_RECORDS=0-D

Please, add this option to your local configuration file(s), if you would like
to use it. In this case, you would also have to svn update and recompile qC_main.cpp --> qC.x
