Comments for Discussion:
Michael Frenklach wrote (4/6/07):
In continuation of our discussion last week in San Diego, about extremely large-size data records,
I would like to propose to undertake an exploratory exercise: to select a ~1 GB size data record,
typical of the type of data collected in turbulent flames, and see if the current PrIMe Data Model
can accommodate it, and/or what modifications are needed to do so.
If this sounds something that you would like to do, I would suggest the following plan of action:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
- To form a small work-group of people interested (it would be good to include among them also
those who know object-oriented programming and/or XML).
- The work group can identify/create a "representative" sample file of data (it would be easier
to start with no larger than 1-10 GB size).
- Zoran and I will create a first-cut XML example of this data
file/record following the present PrIMe Data Model, and identify
what additional features are possibly needed.
- We all will meet (actually or virtually) to discuss the results and consider further actions.
