Syntax

H5P.set_alignment(fapl_id,threshold,alignment)

Description

H5P.set_alignment(fapl_id,threshold,alignment) sets the alignment properties of the file access property list specified by fapl_id so that any file object greater than or equal in size to threshold (in bytes) is aligned on an address which is a multiple of alignment.

In most cases the default values of threshold and alignment result in the best performance.
