cdflib.setCompressionCacheSize

Specify number of compression cache buffers

Syntax

cdflib.setCompressionCacheSize(cdfId,numBuffers)

Description

cdflib.setCompressionCacheSize(cdfId,numBuffers) specifies the number of cache buffers used for the compression scratch CDF file. For more information about CDF cache schemes, see the CDF User's Guide.

cdfId identifies the CDF file. numBuffers specifies the number of buffers.

Examples

Create a CDF file and specify the number of compression cache buffers used. To run this example you must be in a writable folder.

cdfId = cdflib.create('your_file.cdf');

% Get the current number of compression cache buffers
numBuf = cdflib.getCompressionCacheSize(cdfId)

numBuf =

    80

% Set a new value
cdflib.setCompressionCacheSize(cdfId,100)

% Check the new value
numBuf = cdflib.getCompressionCacheSize(cdfId)

numBuf =

   100

% Clean up 
cdflib.delete(cdfId)
clear cdfId
