Effective large-scale data visualization remains an important challenge with analysis codes already producing terabyte results on clusters with thousands of processors. Frequently the analysis codes produce distributed data and consume a significant portion of the available memory per node. This article presents an architectural approach to handling these visualization problems based on parallel data streaming to enable visualizations on a parallel cluster. The authors' approach requires less memory than other visualizations while achieving high code reuse.
