  • Scientific Compression Library (SCIL) 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.
  • 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.
