Simulation output

Particle data

Arepo supports various formats for in- and output, which are essentially the same as in Gadget-2. Format 1 and format 2 are binary outputs and the main reason why they are still supported is to allow the use of initial conditions from well-tested initial condition codes that write one of these formats. For output (or when creating new initial condition generating code), the authors recommend the format 3, which is an HDF5 format. Many of the examples create the initial conditions in HDF5 with the examples/*/create.py python script.

Format 1

Format 1 is organized in blocks, each holding information about all particles for a specific property. The first block is the header, containing global information about the particle set. Within the other blocks, particles are ordered according to their particle type.

For a more detailed description of this file format, see the Gadget-2 user guide (https://wwwmpa.mpa-garching.mpg.de/gadget/users-guide.pdf).

Format 2

Format 2 is a variant of format 1, but containing an additional 4-character string at the beginning of each block (called Block ID in table). This way, it is possible to read the snapshot without having detailed information about all settings that were active in the code that produced this output.

Format 3 / HDF5

Format 3 is the by now recommended format, based on the hdf5 library. The particle data output consists of hdf5 groups called PartTypeX where X runs from 0 to NTYPES-1 (NTYPES=6 if not set in Config-file). Each of these hdf5 groups has a number of datasets with properties belonging to this particular particle type, e.g. Coordinates for the position of particles. These are in general 2d arrays, where the first dimension represents the different particles, while the second dimension is the dimensionality of the specific property (e.g. for Coordinates, every particle has 3 entries, its x, y and z coordinate). Consequently, for scalar quantities, the array is just one dimensional.

In addition to the particle types, each file has an hdf5 group called Header, with general information about the simulation and this file in particular. These informations are stored in hdf5 attributes within the header group.

To facilitate the use of the snapshot, the compile time settings are also stored in the snapshots, saved as attributes in the group Config, as well as the parameter settings in the group Parameters. To be sure it is however advisable to check the ./build/arepoconfig.h and the ./output/parameters-usedvalues files for the compile time and run-time variables of a given simulation.

FOF/Subfind

The halo and subhalo finder produces a separate output file, summarizing the properties determined by the on the fly analysis. These run immediately before every simulation output, and also sort the particles in the particle data output according to group membership, subhalo membership and binding energy.

The (sub)halo output files have two hdf5 groups containing halo data, called Group, for the properties of groups (identified by the Friend-of-Friends algorithm), and Subhalo, for substructures in groups.
