H5P_GET_CHUNK_CACHE retrieves the number of chunk slots in the raw data chunk cache hash table , the maximum possible number of bytes in the raw data chunk cache, and the preemption policy value.

These values are retrieved from a dataset access property list. If the values have not been set on the property list, then values returned will be the corresponding values from a default file access property list.

Any (or all) pointer arguments may be null pointers, in which case the corresponding data is not returned.


Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.

Example Usage:
The following code retrieves the chunk cache settings on the dataset access property list dapl_id into local variables:
size_t nslots, nbytes;
double w0;
status = H5Pget_chunk_cache(dapl_id, &nslots, &nbytes, &w0);
