Write evaluation data only for simulation interfaces to HDF5


This keyword is related to the topics:


Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Default: simulation


When this option is selected, evaluation data only for simulation interfaces will be written to HDF5. Simulation interfaces include fork, system, direct, matlab, python, scilab, and grid interfaces, but not approximation interfaces, which are automatically generated by Dakota to be used by surrogate models.

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.


For the example input in the parent keyword, the following interface groups would be written:

  • /interfaces/truth/truth_m/

Depending on the model_selection, the following links may be added to model sources groups.

  • /models/simulation/truth_m/sources/truth $ \rightarrow $ /interfaces/truth/truth_m/
