> (Screenshot attached: testdrive_airavata.png)
> *Suggestions:-*
> Input file validations for experiments required:- In case of Application
> WRF, there are no input file validations, which means one can try uploading
> huge sized files through multiple requests and can possibly jam the
> bandwidth and network. Also, I just tried launching an experiment with WRF
> application by interchanging the input files (Experiment ID:
> TestRandom_91e49639-5b92-4740-b2a4-dcacc2dcc2a5). The job failed as
> expected but it gave me a segmentation fault with locations of some
> locations of core libraries on the stampede supercomputer in the stderr
> file (Attached: WRF.stderr) which can be a potential security risk.
> Indicate availability of the supercomputing resource:- The portal can
> provide the user with info about the availability of the supercomputing
> resources indicating if they are ready to accept jobs or down for
> maintenance.
> Thank you.
