Technical Report Number
We have implemented a C-based graphic engine, called SwarmView, which is used to display animation traces as produced by SwarmExec the Prolong-based Swarm execution engine. SwarmView runs on a Silicon Graphics Personal Iris running IRIX, a UNIX-based operating system. This paper describes the major design elements of SwarmView. A basic familiarity with Swarm and its visualization extension is assumed; the interested reader is referred to the referenced papers. Familiarity with the paper "SwarmView Animation Vocabulary and Interpretation" is required; the appendices of this paper are reproduced from that one.
