29.4. TAUdb Views

In order to provide flexible data management, the application / experiment / trial hierarchy was removed in the conversion from PerfDMF to TAUdb. In addition, trial metadata was promoted from an XML blob in PerfDMF to queryable tables. Users can now organize their data in arbitrary hierarchies using Views and SubViews. Creating and using Views is outlined in the ParaProf User Manual, in Chapter 2.
