H5P_SET_CACHE ( plist_id, mdc_nelmts, rdcc_nslots, rdcc_nbytes, rdcc_w0 )

Note

Motivation: Setting raw data chunk cache parameters can be done with H5P_SET_CACHE, H5P_SET_CHUNK_CACHE, or a combination of both. H5P_SET_CACHE is used to adjust the chunk cache parameters for all datasets via a global setting for the file, and H5P_SET_CHUNK_CACHE is used to adjust the chunk cache parameters for individual datasets. When both are used, parameters set with H5P_SET_CHUNK_CACHE will override any parameters set with H5P_SET_CACHE.

Optimum chunk cache parameters may vary widely depending on different data layout and access patterns. For datasets with low performance requirements for example, changing the cache settings can save memory.

Note:  Raw dataset chunk caching is not currently supported when using the MPI I/O and MPI POSIX file drivers in read/write mode; see H5P_SET_FAPL_MPIO and H5P_SET_FAPL_MPIPOSIX, respectively. When using one of these file drivers, all calls to H5D_READ and H5D_WRITE will access the disk directly, and H5P_SET_CACHE will have no effect on performance.

Raw dataset chunk caching is supported when these drivers are used in read-only mode.

Parameters:
HTML Wrap
classhdf-rm-section
hid_t plist_idIN: File access property list identifier
int mdc_nelmtsIN: No longer used; any value passed is ignored
size_t rdcc_nslots

IN: The number of chunk slots in the raw data chunk cache for this dataset

Increasing this value reduces the number of cache collisions, but slightly increases the memory used. Due to the hashing strategy, this value should ideally be a prime number. As a rule of thumb, this value should be at least 10 times the number of chunks that can fit in rdcc_nbytes bytes. For maximum performance, this value should be set approximately 100 times that number of chunks. The default value is 521.

size_t rdcc_nbytes

IN: Total size of the raw data chunk cache in bytes

The default size is 1 MB per dataset.

double rdcc_w0

IN: The chunk preemption policy for all datasets

This must be between 0 and 1 inclusive and indicates the weighting according to which chunks which have been fully read or written are penalized when determining which chunks to flush from cache. A value of 0 means fully read or written chunks are treated no differently than other chunks (the preemption is strictly LRU) while a value of 1 means fully read or written chunks are always preempted before other chunks. If your application only reads or writes data once, this can be safely set to 1. Otherwise, this should be set lower depending on how often you re-read or re-write the same data.

The default value is 0.75. If the value passed is H5D_CHUNK_CACHE_W0_DEFAULT, then the property will not be set on dapl_id, and the parameter will come from the file access property list.

AnchorNamedescription

Description:
HTML Wrap
classhdf-rm-section

H5P_SET_CACHE sets the number of elements, the total number of bytes, and the preemption policy value for all datasets in a file on the file’s file access property list.

The raw data chunk cache inserts chunks into the cache by first computing a hash value using the address of a chunk and then by using that hash value as the chunk’s index into the table of cached chunks. In other words, the size of this hash table and the number of possible hash values is determined by the rdcc_nslots parameter. If a different chunk in the cache has the same hash value, a collision will occur, which will reduce efficiency. If inserting the chunk into the cache would cause the cache to be too big, then the cache will be pruned according to the rdcc_w0 parameter.

The mdc_nelmts parameter is no longer used; any value passed in that parameter will be ignored.
