Request for Changes-26: MPI Image File Writer
[Request for Changes - 24] MPI Image file writer
- Author: Rémi Cresson
- Submitted on 11.02.2016
- Proposed target release 5.4
Provide a parallel image file writer, which use MPI-IO to write one image with multiple processing nodes simultaneously
Use OTB on HPC architectures
Classes and files
otbMPIImageFileWriter.h (or something like this?) otbMPIImageFileWriter.hxx otbMPIHelpers.h (containing some bridge definitions between OTB and MPI, like data types.)
The actual writer writes only GeoTiffs. It relies on the SPTW (Simple Parallel Tiff Writer) developed by David Matthew Mattli. Pull request submitted (to make SPTW writing stripped images,only tiled writing was implemented).
Tests could consist in comparing one image writed with the original otb::ImageFileWriter to images produced with the parallel image file writer using different tiling scheme, strategies, etc.
List remaining open issues if any, and additional notes.
