On August 31 Argonne Leadership Computing Facility is hosting a webinar on the HDF5 parallel file system, its possible effects on HDF5 performance, and a summary of tools useful for performance investigations. HDF5 is a data model, file format, and I/O library that has become a de-facto standard for HPC applications to achieve scalable I/O and the storage and management of big data from computer modeling.

The workshop is geared towards the ALCF’s Polaris system and will use examples from well-known codes and use cases from HPC science applications in hands-on demonstrations. The workshop targets intermediate and advanced users of HDF5 since it will cover the best practices, supporting analysis tools, and tuning techniques for researchers already using parallel HDF5.
The deadline to register is August 15, 2022.
Speaker Bio: Scot Breitenfeld received his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Arizona and his M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The focus of his master’s thesis was modeling elastodynamic failure in bi-material interfaces using a spectral method. He has worked for the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)on parallel structural code development and evaluation of the parallel performance of commercial finite element software. Additionally, he worked on a DARPA-funded smart mesoflaps for an aeroelastic transpiration project parallelizing the CFD solver and parallel coupling of the fluid and structural solvers. He also worked for the Center for Simulation of Advanced Rockets (CSAR) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was the principal developer of the explicit parallel 3D ALE fracture and structural/thermal finite element solver, Rocfrac, within the center’s multi-physics code RocStar. He received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working on modeling quasi-static fracture using Non-Ordinary State-based peridynamics. He is currently an HDF application support specialist and software engineer at The HDF Group.
