Summary0004215: ParaView uses legacy readers which are big endian
DescriptionSince nearly all modern computers are little endian, it is unfortunate that the legacy binary readers/writers always use big endian format. ParaView uses this format for transferring data, so this causes byte-swapping on the sending and receiving end. It would be better if the data could be sent in little endian format, or the user could choose whether to send in little or big endian format.

Is this overhead significant compared to network transfer?

That's unknown.

I think the only option is to use the xml readers/writers.

I agree that this bug should be closed. I suspect that the time spent swapping bytes is orders of magnitude less than the necessary time just loading and storing the data itself. If you disagree, feel free to bring it up on the mailing list or open a new bug.
