A suitable XDS.INP should normally be written by the beamline software; [[generate_XDS.INP]] does not yet write it. The XDS_from_H5.py script can be used if XDS.INP is not available.

As of October 2015 (and the current Eiger firmware), the amount of data from a Eiger 16M experiment is 4-6 times larger for most users than the equivalent experiment on a Pilatus 6M, although the number of pixels of the Eiger 16M is only 3 times higher than that of the Pilatus 6M. It is therefore advisable to compress the .h5 files on-site, before transferring them home using disk or internet. The fastest (parallel) program with the best compression for this purpose that I found is [http://lbzip2.org lbzip2] (available from the EPEL repository for RHEL clones).
