Thanks for the ncdump output. In starting to try to reproduce the crash you're encountering, it looks like you are dealing with truly huge files. From your netcdfgroup posting, it sounds like you are dealing with 1048576 times. In that case, I compute the size of the H variable float H(time, lev, lat, lon) ; to be 1048576*48*91*180*4 bytes, which is about 3.3 TB. And your file has 10 such 4D variables, so the file size is about 33 TB. Does the crash you see occur also with a smaller number of times, or do you only see it with on the order of a million times? --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: LBV-326209 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
