When using multipleForecastingShells=true, it is recommended not to include more (sequential) activities in the parallel section than the number of forecasting shell instances available. Note that all taskrun partitions receive the same scheduledDispatchedTime. In order to be run successfully, they need to be dispatched within amount of seconds specified by the fews.master.mc.conf launcher maxlatetime, otherwise the taskruns may become terminated because they are overdue. The current implementation of multipleForecastingShells=true does not come with intelligence that will take into account the runIndepent=true flag. If one of the partitioned taskRuns is completely failed or is terminated, the other partitions that are not completed yet will be terminated.

When using forecastingShellCount = n  every underlying loop is split into n parts. Every FS instance is running the same specified activity but skipping the part of the ensemble loop / location loop that is meant for an other FS instance. It is not allowed to start a nested parallel when you are in a ensemble/location loop parallel.

Before 2019.02 if an existing scheduled workflow is redefined as a parallel workflow, it needs to be rescheduled to prevent errors. In the worst case situation the MC may become unavailable.

The current implementation of multipleForecastingShells=true does not come with intelligence that will take into account the runIndepent=true flag. If one of the partitioned taskRuns is completely failed or is terminated, the other partitions that are not completed yet will be terminated.

title2017.02 Improvement

In 2017.02 fss patch #92224 provides an improvement / bugfix that only applies to the multipleForecastingShells=true option in 2017.02. With this improvement, a partly successful forecast partition in 2017.02 should not cause termination of the other partitions.
