The HDF Group has a design plan for a more efficient implementation of thread-safety, but currently does not have the resources to implement the plan. If you are interested in supporting this effort, please contact the HDF Helpdesk.


Can you run Parallel HDF5 and the thread-safe feature together ?


By default, you cannot build either Parallel HDF5 with C++ or Parallel HDF5 with the thread-safe feature. You will receive a configure error if you try either of these combinationsthis combination.

Checks were added to the configure to disallow these combinationsthis, as they are it is not tested and may fail.

However, the --enable-unsupported configure option enables users enable you to get around these checks this check at their your own risk. (You can actually view the configure file to see where the checks are made.) If the build completes properly and the tests pass, then the installation should be okay.
