HDFView 2.14

The HDF5 technology suite includes:

  • A versatile data model that can represent very complex data objects and a wide variety of metadata.
  • A completely portable file format with no limit on the number or size of data objects in the collection.
  • A software library that runs on a range of computational platforms, from laptops to massively parallel systems, and implements a high-level API with C, C++, Fortran 90, and Java interfaces.
  • A rich set of integrated performance features that allow for access time and storage space optimizations.
  • Tools and applications for managing, manipulating, viewing, and analyzing the data in the collection.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load HDFView/2.14-Java-1.8.0_152-centos7

To launch the GUI run the following command:

$ hdfview.sh

HDFView should only be run on the large memory node that is intended for running applications with a graphical interface. Accessing these nodes is described in the help page describing the use of the BlueBEAR logon nodes.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.

Known Problems & Limitations
