  - CP_F_{FASTEST/SLOWEST}_RANK_TIME counters now take MPI-IO time into
    account, not just POSIX time, issue reported by Huong Luu.
32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
  - Better handling of systems with many mounted file systems (after which
    point Darshan will assume file resides on / file system), issue reported
    and investigated by David Shrader:
    - Track up to 64 rather than 32 mounted file systems at runtime.
    - Increase header space available for storing mount point information in
      log file from approximately 1 KiB to approximately 3 KiB.
    - Prioritize storing information about non-NFS volumes over NFS volumes
      if too many file systems are mounted to record them all.

darshan-2.2.6
76
=============
77
* Bug fixes:
78
  - make sure to honor user-specified hints passed in at runtime
79 80
    via the DARSHAN_LOGHINTS env variable.
  - include fread and fwrite in darshan-job-summary.pl read and write counts
81
  - fix segmentation fault on invalid arguments to darshan-parser
82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94
* Performance enhancements:
  - collect mount point information at rank 0 and broadcast to all 
    processes to avoid excess file system traffic on startup
  - change default MPI-IO hints for writing log file to
    romio_no_indep_rw=true and cb_nodes=4 to improve log creation performance
* Install libdarshan-util and headers during installation process for
  darshan-util; patch contributed by Matthieu Dorier
* Detect PMPI support at link time when using compiler scripts produced
  by the darshan-gen-* utilities.  This avoids link problems when Darshan
  compiler wrappers are used with the ADIOS dummy MPI library; reported
  by Jingqing Mu
* Support MPICH_{CC/CXX/F77} environment variables in compiler scripts
  produced by the darshan-gen-* utilities
Philip Carns's avatar
Philip Carns committed
95 96
* Add instrumentation of startup time, enabled via DARSHAN_INTERNAL_TIMING
  environment variable
Philip Carns's avatar
Philip Carns committed
97 98
* Rename cp-shutdown-bench test utility to darshan-shutdown-bench and enable
  benchmarking hooks in library by default so that darshan-shutdown-bench 
99
  can be used with any Darshan installation
100
* Remove deprecated --enable-st-dev-workaround configure option
101
* Misc. documentation updates
102

103
darshan-2.2.5
104 105 106 107
=============
* Fix bug in mount point identification when --enable-stat-at-open option is
  not used.  In Darshan 2.2.4, some file entries were recorded as using the "/"
  file system regardless of their location.
108 109
* Update patches and documentation for Cray xt-asyncpe environment 5.12 or 
  higher; contributed by Yushu Yao.
110 111
* Update documentation to no longer recommend --enable-stat-at-open option on 
  any systems
112 113
* Fix unresolved symbols error when linking non-MPI programs with Cray
  compiler.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121
* Use fstat() in place of stat() for detecting file information when
  --enable-stat-at-open option is used
* Use statfs() at startup to detect default block size for supported file
  systems
* Added --enable-group-readable-logs configure option, which will cause
  Darshan to to generate log files with the group read permission bit set.
  This option is useful in conjunction with deployments that set the setgid
  bit on log directories.
122

123
darshan-2.2.4
124
=============
125 126
* Disable extra stat() of newly opened files by default.  This improves 
  performance on shared files for some platforms.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
127 128 129
  - prevents Darshan from reporting SIZE_AT_OPEN, FILE_ALIGNENT, and 
    DARSHAN_FILE_NOT_ALIGNED values
  - features can still be enabled via --enable-stat-at-open option
130 131
* Fix missing -lz in post ld flags reported by Yushu Yao.  Fixes a link-time
  error for some corner-case applications.
132 133
* Fix bug in Cray compiler script patches that was setting compiler flags 
  incorrectly.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
134 135
  WARNING: if you are using a previous Darshan release (2.2.3 through
  2.2.4-pre4) on a Cray platform, please re-patch your compiler scripts.
136 137 138 139
* Update darshan-gen-* scripts to support the potential for additonal LDFLAGS
  or CFLAGS that appear before the object or source file in the compile or
  link commands.  This fixes compatibility with some mvapich2 installations,
  reported by Dragos Constantin.

  darshan-gen-* tools
251 252 253 254

  from different schedulers
* job ID is now recorded within the Darshan log in addition to in the file
  name
