SENSEI Cross-Platform View of In Situ Analytics
TimeSunday, November 11th1:30pm - 5pm
DescriptionThis tutorial covers the design and use of SENSEI, a platform for in situ visualization and analysis. For simulation developers, you can instrument your code with the SENSEI simulation API and gain access to a wide variety of I/O, analysis, and visualization tools. For tool developers, you can add support for the SENSEI analysis API and support a wide range of simulations.
Attendees will learn the basics of in situ analysis and visualization — which eliminates the need for writing large simulation state files or other data that prevents scaling to large machines — while being exposed to advanced analysis such as autocorrelation, interactive monitoring, and computational steering. We'll demonstrate how simulations can couple to ADIOS, Henson, ParaView Catalyst, and VisIt Libsim through the SENSEI platform in order to to gain insight from simulation data even when it is increasingly impractical to save it to persistent storage.
The tutorial will include a hands-on session that uses a virtual machine to demonstrate SENSEI features. Please download it before SC18 from https://www.sensei-insitu.org/ ; it will be available in early November.
