Visualizing Parallel Programs and Performance
July 1995 (vol. 15 no. 4)
pp. 12-14
Performance visualization uses graphical display techniques to analyze performance data and improve understanding of complex performance phenomena. Current parallel performance visualizations are predominantly two-dimensional. A primary goal of our work is to develop new methods for rapidly prototyping multidimensional performance visualizations. By applying the tools of scientific visualization, we can prototype these next-generation displays for performance visualizationif not implement them as end-user toolsusing existing software products and graphical techniques that physicists, oceanographers, and meteorologists have used for several years.
