Abstract

A description of interactive visualization plugins for the UNICORE grid system is provided. The plugins allows for attaching to running UNICORE jobs, downloading current state of computation and visualization of the results. The plugin set contains a general purpose 2D visualization system Sapphire and an example plugin MolDyAna for 3D visualization of the progress of molecular dynamics jobs. The Sapphire subsystem contains user configurable tools for simple plots of different types and 2D data plotting tools, together with an extensive GUI. MolDyAna provides both standard methods of animation and graphing and several advanced postprocessing and visualization techniques
