ecFlow's documentation is now on readthedocs!

It can be as simple as adding a line trigger to prevent a family (or suite) to continue any further as soon as a problem (abort) occurs:

family forecast
trigger forecast != aborted

Alternatively a limit may play a similar role, as it may be reduced to 0 manually by an Analyst or an Operator, or even a dedicated batch script.

family forecast
limit hpc 100
inlimit hpc # use: ecflow_client --alter=change limit hpc 0 $path # to stop
