Neil Fortner, Chief HDF5 Software Architect, hosted Call the Doctor to talk about Selection I/O, a new feature in HDF5 1.14.1. This feature allows the library to pass a non-contiguous I/O operation to the file driver in a single function call, and can also be used to enable collective I/O with type conversion. Neil talk about:
- What selection I/O is,
- Benefits of and requirements for selection I/O,
- Benefits of and requirements for collective type conversion,
- Additions to the VFD layer, and
- Other API additions.
This session happened on May 23, 2023. You can also watch this episode online.
Call the Doctor is a series of weekly, unscripted, live events! The HDF Group’s staff members will answer attendee questions and, for example, go over the previous week’s HDF Forum posts. The HDF Clinics are free sessions intended to help users tackle real-world HDF problems from a common cold to severe headaches and offer relief where that’s possible. As time permits, we will include how-tos, offer advice on tool usage, review your code samples, teach you survival in the documentation jungle, and discuss what’s new or just around the corner in the land of HDF.
