The eXtensible Data Model and Format XDMF provides a performance friendly system to integrate high performance computing HPC codes, analysis tools, and user interfaces into a single end user application. Based on industry standards, XDMF allows codes to exist in a modem computing environment with minimal modification. Instead of imposing a new programming paradigm on HPC codes, XDMF uses the existing concept of file inputoutput IO for distributed coordination. XDMF incorporates Network Distributed Global Memory NDGM, Hierarchical Data Format version 5 HDF5, and eXtensible Markup Language XML to provide a flexible yet efficient data exchange mechanism.
