There are countless ways to define an algorithm structure, which are mostly organized by flow of data, by executed tasks or by data decomposition. The so-called information graph provides a combination of these patterns. A possibility to investigate visually the information graph of a particular algorithm is, therefore, an adequate tool that helps to understand the algorithm itself, determining its resource of parallelism and figuring out how to code it better for parallel computing systems. In this paper, we present our approach to the information graphs visualization system, where online availability and low computational cost are the primary goals.
