HDF5 is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data. HDF5 can store two primary objects: datasets and groups. A dataset is essentially a multidimensional array of data elements, and a group is a structure for organizing objects in an HDF5 file. Using these two basic objects, one can create and store almost any kind of scientific data structure, such as images, arrays of vectors, and structured and unstructured grids.





Additional Notes

HDF5 is currently available on the ICHEC systems with Intel compiler support only. It is strongly recommended that Intel compilers are used; If GNU compiler versions are required, please contact ICHEC staff via the Helpdesk.

HDF5 is supplied with Fortran, C++ and parallel-IO support.

To use HDF5 on Fionn, load the relevant environment module:

module load libs hdf5/intel/1.8.11

To use HDF5 with parallel-IO support on Fionn, load the relevant environment module:

module load libs hdf5/intel_mpi/1.8.11
