Proceedings of the 4th Europmicro Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing
In this paper we present a new approach for monitoring and visualization of parallel processing systems. Instead of measuring the system and presenting to the user a variety of performance figures and visualization displays afterwards, in this user-oriented approach the events and features of interest may be selected before instrumentation and measurements. Different techniques for this a priori filtering of events are provided, ranging from a direct manipulative selection in a graphical, hierarchical representation of the program and the architecture, to a textual, rule based selection. Real-Life Metaphors in visualization make this approach particularly suited for so called novice (i.e. non-expert) users, thus suggesting teaching as one of the major fields of application.
