Benchmarking Programs

Be mindful of benchmarks which write large contiguous chunks of data. While interesting, it might not be what a scientific application using PnetCDF would actually do.

Older versions of IOR triggered a performance bug on some Lustre file systems. Sometimes slow write performance on Lustre can be fixed by disabling the "data sieving" optimization. See HintsForPnetcdf for more information.
