The following products are developed or contributed to by the group:

  • The IO500
    This benchmark suite measures the performance of high-performance storage systems.
  • IOR and MDTest
    The benchmark suite for IOR and MDTest measure metadata and IO performance, we are contributing significantly to the development.
  • Earth System Data Middleware
    This middleware provides a high-level of abstraction to scientific data and is able to distribute data across multiple storage systems in a complex storage landscape.
  • Scientific Compression Library (SCIL)
    This library decouples the definition of required accuracy from algorithms that compress data – allowing to choose data intelligently.
  • MD-Workbench
    This is an HPC metadata benchmark allowing to investigate concurrent activity and latency.
  • XPD-IO-Driver
    This is an MPI agnostic driver for the Kove XPD.
  • Statistical-File-Scanner for Data Centers (SFS)
    This tool allows to collect file statistics of data centers using methods from statistics. Therefore, by scanning only a fraction of data, it is possible to estimate the fraction/performance/compression ratio of tools.

The following products are not anymore supported:

  • HDTrace + PIOsimHD
    This is a tracing library and simulator focused on HPC I/O but also covers MPI.
  • SIOX
    Is a flexible tracing/analysis library allowing to experiment and mutate I/O likewise.
