Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
vsfplot is a 2D vector and scalar field plotter. It features Line Integral Convolution (LIC) on data, curvilinear scaled arrows following the flow lines, a mixed mode (scalar field map with overlaid vector field), handling of missing data to not interfere with the flow lines, generation of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files (which are easily editable and convertible while preserving the best quality for inclusion in a PDF scientific article), and a color palette designed so the flows are uniformly readable when printed as greyscale.
