[netcdf-hdf] collective I/O ?

Hi

I'm continuing to look at NetCDF-4 and have found that it's not
actually doing collective I/O.  Even though it's the default, I've
called nc_var_par_access with NC_COLLECTIVE just to be sure.

I can verify in Jumpshot that all (in this case) 4 processors are
calling independent I/O routines (MPI_File_write_at), even though I
was expecting to see collective I/O (MPI_File_write_all or
MPI_File_write_at_all).  

This appears to be the case for both writes and reads. 

In case it matters, I'm using an exceedingly small dataset.
