Many large-scale parallel scientific and engineering applications, especially climate modeling, often run for lengthy periods and require data checkpointing periodically to save the state of the computation for a program restart. In addition, such applications need to write data to disks for post-processing, e.g., visualization. Both these scenarios involve a write-only pattern using Hierarchal Data Format (HDF) files. In this paper, we study the scalability of CXFS by HDF based Structured… Expand
