Interface Evaluation Storage Selection (Group 1) none

Write evaluation data for no interfaces to HDF5

simulation

Write evaluation data only for simulation interfaces to HDF5

all

Write evaluation data for all interfaces to HDF5

Description

By default, when HDF5 output is enabled, Dakota writes evaluation data for all simulation interfaces (interfaces of type fork, system, direct, etc, but not approximation interfaces, which are constructed by models of type surrogate). This keyword group is used to override the default.

HDF5 output is an experimental feature, and the contents and organization of the output file is subject to change. The current organization and a brief explanation of HDF5 is provided in the Dakota HDF5 Output section of this manual.

The example below will be used to explain the effect of each keyword.
