Set chunk size




H5P.set_chunk(plist_id,h5_chunk_dims) sets the size of the chunks used to store a chunked layout dataset. plist_id is a dataset creation property list identifier. h5_chunk_dims is an array specifying the size, in dataset elements, of each chunk.

    Note:   The HDF5 library uses C-style ordering for multidimensional arrays, while MATLAB® uses FORTRAN-style ordering. The h5_chunk_dims parameter assumes C-style ordering. Please consult "Using the MATLAB Low-Level HDF5 Functions" in the MATLAB documentation for more information.


Create a two dimensional double precision dataset that has an initial size of [512 1024], but is also unlimited in both dimensions and has a chunk size of [512 1024].

fid = H5F.create('myfile.h5');
type_id = H5T.copy('H5T_NATIVE_DOUBLE');
unlimited = H5ML.get_constant_value('H5S_UNLIMITED');
dims = [512 1024];
h5_dims = fliplr(dims);
h5_maxdims = [unlimited unlimited];
space_id = H5S.create_simple(2,[1024 512],h5_maxdims);
dcpl = H5P.create('H5P_DATASET_CREATE');
chunk_dims = [512 1024];
h5_chunk_dims = fliplr(chunk_dims);
dset_id = H5D.create(fid,'DS',type_id,space_id,dcpl);
