Damaris is being used in the EuroHPC ACROSS project

The Damaris library is being used within the ACROSS project to improve the I/O performance of one of the three pilot use cases being used in a software-hardware co-design methodology.
The pilot use-case is the OPM flow software which is an open-source code for simulating sub-surface geological flows of mixtures of fluids. The code is being developed to model carbon dioxide capture and storage options over long time scales. The simulations will be computationally demanding and improved I/O will help the performance of the code. The ACROSS project is also supporting the extension of Damaris for in-situ analytics, where embedding Python in conjunction with other distributed analytic libraries (e.g. MELISSA, Ray) is being trialed as a way to query and analyze results of simulations while minimizing the required amount of output data being needed for post-processing. Of course, this will be able to be done asynchronously, with minimal effect on the simulation runtime with the help of Damaris.

Damaris 1.5.0 is released

Damaris 1.5.0 has been released. This version adds support for the unstructured mesh data layout type, and currently the implementation only has ParaView support (VisIt support is on the way). It also includes better logging support and bug fixes included. Download is available from the Damaris download page. (N.B. There…

HDF5 backend is now supported.

In the latest release of Damaris that can be found here (i.e. version 1.2.0), writing simulation results into HDF5 format (.h5 files) is supported. Using this release, all Damaris dedicated core are able to dump the datasets into HDF5 format either collectively (one HDF5 file for all the dedicated cores)…

Build and run Damaris on Docker

Preparing an environment to build and run Damaris may be not that easy. The problem is that some required libraries and frameworks (especially VisIt) may take a lot of time to be installed and configured. Thanks to the Docker technology, in version 1.1.0, we have automated the environment preparation process….
