The climate diagnostics benchmark, or CDB, is a subcomponent of the ExArch project in support of "Work Package 3: Climate Diagnostics".

It has been developed by  Frédéric Laliberté in 2011 at the University of Toronto with input from  Paul Kushner at the University of Toronto. It was tested on the CICLAD compute server at the IPSL and on the login nodes at BADC. Please direct any question to  Frédéric Laliberté.

The CDB is intended to provide a simple framework to write CMIP5-oriented climate diagnostics scripts. Its aims are:

  • Simplify the development of climate diagnostics on ESG servers
  • Benchmark a server-side computing framework
  • Help in the timely delivery of model intercomparisons
