CDB Description

The CDB was tested on the CICLAD compute server at the IPSL and on the login nodes at BADC.

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
