HDF Releases in 2008 - 2009 • HDF4 • HDF4r2.4 (February 2009) • HDF5 • HDF5-1.8.1 (May 2008) • HDF5-1.6.8 (November 2008) • HDF5-1.8.2 (November 2008) • HDF- Java Products • Version 2.5 (February 2009) • H4toH5 • Version 2.0 (June 2008) • Version 2.1 (February 2009) Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  16. HDF Libraries Release Highlights Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  17. HDF4r2.4 • Fixed a flaw in the HDF4 design exposed by applications that use HDF-NetCDF interface to access both HDF4 and NetCDF-3 files with datasets/variables with unlimited dimensions. • Added several new APIs including API to get compressed size of data. • Updated hdp and hrepack to display compression information. • Added support for Fedora 10, Ubuntu 8.10, and OpenSuse 11.1 with GNU C and Fortran. • Better support for Mac OSX (GNU compilers and 32-bit Intel). • http://www.hdfgroup.org/release4/obtain.html Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  18. HDF5-1.6.8 • Many improvements in tools to address ESDIS requests • Availability of compression information in h5dump • Files comparison with h5diff • Support for strings in h5import • Support for user block in h5repack • Added compatibility macros (e.g., H5Gcreate1) for applications to work the same with 1.6.* and 1.8.* • Support for object and region references in C++ • Bug fixes • http://www.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/release/obtain516.html Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  19. HDF5-1.8.1&2 • Tools improvements • Support for external links • Support for a simplified way to produce binary output by h5dump (ESDIS) • Better support for user block with h5repack • Improved performance for free space tracking in a file • Fixed bugs with file mounting • Many improvements in configuration, installation and testing • Better support for shared C, Fortran and C++ libraries • http://www.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/release/obtain5.html Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  20. HDF Java Products • New released is based on JDK 1.6.x, HDF4r2.4 and HDF5-1.8.2 with 1.6 compatibility • Java products (i.e. HDFView) can read files created by HDF5 1.8.2 • New HDFView: • Supports access to remote HDF5 files stored at the iRODS server (Windows and Linux only). For information on HDF5-iRODS module, see http://www.hdfgroup.org/projects/irods/index.html. • Shows large dataset (e.g. 1,000,000 x 100) in a table viewer • Converts JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP images to HDF5 or HDF4 • Saves HDF4 or HDF5 images to JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP images • Writes variable length string data • Filters fill values for images Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  21. H4toH5 tools and library • Based on HDF4r2.4 and HDF5-1.8.2 • h4toh5 utility • Recognizes HDF-EOS2 files (--with-hdfeos2 configuration option) • Can generate HDF5 files that can be read by netCDF-4 • h4toh5 library • Bug fixes • Performance improvements Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  22. Quality Assurance Some work of interest to ESDIS Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  23. QA Efforts • We test at least 250 different configurations for HDF software (OSs x compilers x HDF configurations) every day • Regression testing of HDF5 released branches (1.6. and 1.8) and development branch (1.9), and HDF4 • Platforms • Linux 32 and 64, Solaris 32 and 64, Free BSD 32 and 64, AIX 32 and 64 (at LLNL), Windows 32 and 64, Linux Clusters, SGI Altix • Backward/forward compatibility testing • Third part software testing Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  24. Backward/forward compatibility testing • Goal: assure interoperability between 1.6 and later versions of the HDF5 library used to create AURA files • Regression tests with and without strict format checks using known problem files (currently MLS Cloud series with corrupted headers) • Download sample from subdirectories of OMI, MLS, HIRDL, TOMS and TES files. Sample consists of files from the current day of the year for available years in two of the subdirectories listed for the above instruments. Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  25. Backward/forward compatibility testing • FTP sites (about 540 000 files) • OMI Level 2 files • ftp://aurapar2u.ecs.nasa.gov • OMI Level2G, MLS and HIRDL files • ftp://acdisc.gsfc.nasa.gov  • TOM files • ftp://acdisc.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov • TES files • ftp://l4ftl01.larc.nasa.gov Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  26. Backward/forward compatibility testing • Each known subdirectory will be visited ~5 times per year. • hdf5 tools from versions 1.6.9, 1.8.3, and 1.9.0 are checked for proper operation with downloaded files. • Downloaded files are copied with h5copy and repacked with h5repack. The resulting files are checked again with all 3 versions of the tools. Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS

  27. Third party software testing • NetCDF-4 • Daily tests of the netCDF4 snapshot • Built against current HDF5 v1.8.* • Tested on Linux 32/64 bit and solaris • HDF-EOS2 and HDF-EOS5 testing • HDFEOS2 with h4cc, 32/64 bit Linux, 32 bit solaris • HDFEOS5 with hdf5 v1.6 and v1.9, 32/64 bit Linux, 32/64 bit solaris • IDL wrappers • Created IDL/HDF module binaries based on HDF5 1.8.2 and HDF4.2r3 Annual HDF Breifing to ESDIS
