Howdy all! I have a question about parallel programming with HDF5. Do parallel programmers just not use unlimited dimensions? I noticed that H5Dextend is a collective operation. This would make it difficult for programs to add a record at a time. Alternatively I could imagine a scheme where extending the dataset would be buffered - some large number of records could be added whenever the current batch is used up. Any thoughts or comments about the use or misuse of unlimited dimensions with HDF5 parallel would be most welcome. Thanks! Ed -- Ed Hartnett -- ed@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
