	abstract	 = {The starting point for our work was a demand for an overview of application’s I/O behavior, that provides information about the usage of our HPC “Mistral”. We suspect that some applications are running using inefficient I/O patterns, and probably, are wasting a significant amount of machine hours. To tackle the problem, we focus on detection of poor I/O performance, identification of these applications, and description of I/O behavior. Instead of gathering I/O statistics from global system variables, like many other monitoring tools do, in our approach statistics come directly from I/O interfaces POSIX, MPI, HDF5 and NetCDF. For interception of I/O calls we use an instrumentation library that is dynamically linked with LD_PRELOAD at program startup. The HPC on-line monitoring framework is built on top of open source software: Grafana, SIOX, Elasticsearch and FUSE. This framework collects I/O statistics from applications and mount points. The latter is used for non-intrusive monitoring of virtual memory allocated with mmap(), i.e., no code adaption is necessary. The framework is evaluated showing its effectiveness and critically discussed.},
