Abstract

In exascale scientific computing, it is essential to efficiently monitor, evaluate and improve performance. Visualization and especially visual analytics are useful and inevitable techniques in the exascale computing era to enable such a human-centered experience. In this ongoing work, we present a visual analytics framework for performance evaluation of scientific workflows. Ultimately, we aim to solve two current challenges: the capability to deal with workflows, and the scalability toward exascale scenario. On the way to achieve these goals, in this work, we first incorporate TAU (Tuning and Analysis Utilities) instrumentation tool and improve it to accommodate workflow measurements. Then we establish a web-based visualization framework, whose back end handles data storage, query and aggregation, while front end presents the visualization and takes user interaction. In order to support the scalability, a few level-of-detail mechanisms are developed. Finally, a chemistry workflow use case is adopted to verify our methods.
