HDF5 is a data model, library, and file format for storing and managing data. It supports an unlimited variety of data types, and is designed for flexible and efficient I/O and for high volume and complex data.


To initialize the environment for HDF5 1.13.1 with Intel and IntelMPI, use

module load intel-compilers/2022.1.0
module load impi/2021.6.0
module load HDF5/1.13.1

alternatively with GCC and OpenMPI:

module load GCC/11.3.0
module load OpenMPI/4.1.4
module load HDF5/1.13.1

This will set the environment variable HDF5_DIR where you can find lib/ and include/ for compiling and linking.
