The Network Common Data Form NetCDF (and its parallel manifestation NetCDF parallel) is a standard library and data format developed and supported by UCAR is released under a BSD-like license.
Both serial and parallel versions are available on ARCHER2 as standard modules:
module load cray-netcdf(serial version)
module load cray-netcdf-hdf5parallel(MPI parallel version)
Note that one should first load the relevant HDF module file, e.g.,
$ module load cray-hdf5 $ module load cray-netcdf
module spider to locate available versions, and use
module help to
cray-specific release notes on a particular version.
- There is currently a problem with the module file which means
cray-netcdf-hdf5parallelwill not operate correctly in
PrgEnv-aocc. One can load module
epcc-netcdf-hdf5parallelinstead as a work-around if
- There are no currently known issues.
Some general comments and information on serial and parallel I/O to ARCHER2 are given in the section on I/O and file systems.
