Hello Francesco,

those options are only respected by the oud<N>D_vars type of selectors.

So for 3D it would be out3D_vars and not eg out_vars.

Unfortunately, recent policy of Hawk have severe restrictions in terms of number of files that can be produced at the same time. The problem is that running several mpi processes generate many hdf5 output files and I would like to have them packed somehow. I have tried to use the option
