Developing an understanding of efficient parallel I/O and adapting your application accordingly can result in orders of magnitude of performance gains without overloading the parallel file system. This half-day tutorial will provide an overview of the practices and strategies for the efficient utilization of parallel file systems through parallel I/O for achieving high performance. The target audience is analysts and application developers who do not have prior experience with MPI I/O, HDF5, and T3PIO. However, they should be familiar with C/C++/Fortan programming and basic MPI. A brief overview of the related basic concepts will be included in the tutorial where needed.
