ResStock models failing on server.

Hi there.

I have been attempting to run just a basic test (20 files) of ResStock (v2.2.1). I have followed along with the documentation in trying to get it to run with PAT on AWS. I successfully can get the server script to start up but I keep getting the same error resulting in all my models to fail.

Here is the error log on one models around the first utterance of an error. image description

It seems as though it is not locating the buildstock.csv, however based on my reading this should trigger a ruby script to generate it? So not sure if it is a bigger problem with the environment not being able to run that? Any ideas are appreciated.

We have blocked (at least temporarily) access to the s3 bucket containing the weather files used for simulations. We are currently working on a solution. In the meantime, you can point to a different weather file location; see for more information.

Thanks for the tip. I tried this with 6 weather files I tried hosting both in dropbox and a public s3 bucket and modified the "Location Weather Filename.tsv" to reflect the restricted options. Still getting the same error. Is there any better way for me to diagnose and troubleshoot than only the error logs being reported back?

Will there be an announcement about when the S3 buckets are usable again? I was also not able to get Resstock to work after pointing it to another location for the weather files.

You should be able to successfully download weather files from other locations using this patched version of ResStock.

I'll let you know when we have a resolution for the S3 bucket issue.

A patch has been released (2.2.3). The release contains PAT projects pointing to weather files that can be successfully downloaded.
