HDF5 for tick data with Python/pandas

<t>To clarify, I'm interested in using PyTables to read chunks of data into memory for analysis and/or to write data from multiple instruments.

HDF5 for tick data with Python/pandas

Does anybody have experience/war stories to share using the above combination?In particular, on retail hardware, what can one expect in terms of performance, such as reads/writes per second to the file store?

std::shared_ptr VS boost::shared_ptr
