Workflow Management with rose/cylc

This page provides is an overview of Met Office tools (Rose, Cylc and FCM) that are installed on JASMIN for running and managing suites on the LOTUS cluster.

The tools are installed under the following common directory which is visible on all LOTUS nodes and the dedicated cylc server:

# Add the location of the rose/cylc executables to $PATH
export PATH=/apps/jasmin/metomi/bin:$PATH

Jobs must be scheduled from the JASMIN server:

All users with a JASMIN/CEMS login account can log in to this server.

Access to the Met Office Science Repository Service has also been set up. For information about authentication to the repositories see:

Following these instructions will give you access to Rose, Cylc & FCM.

If you would like to run the cylc GUI then please login through the NoMachine servers.

“cylc monitor” can be used for monitoring the progress of suites and the other cylc command-line tools can be used to interact with suites where necessary.

This is an example of what to put in your  suite.rc file to get tasks to run on LOTUS (using the Platform LSF submission tool):

        [[[job submission]]]
            method = lsf
            -q = short-serial
            -W = 00:10
            -n = 1
