Using shared libraries on Cray slow down Paraview?

I have compiled Paraview by putting set(BUILD_SHARED_LIBS ON CACHE BOOL “”) in cmake and using export CRAYPE_LINK_TYPE=dynamic enabling Paraview to work with shared libraries on Cray XC40 (SahasraT). But does this configuration significantly affect Paraview’s performance on Cray?

It may depending on filesystem performance. You may set PARAVIEW_BUILD_WITH_KITS (it used to be called PARAVIEW_ENABLE_KITS if you’re using an older version) to make ParaView group its libraries into fewer on-disk artifacts to reduce the number of filesystem calls you’ll need.
