Abstract: Visualization schemas need to be enhanced to support next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) environments. New HPC runtimes perform more actions in a unit of time, but they also perform a wider variety of actions. Existing schemas are too simple to illustrate the variety of information that HPC developers need. However, existing schemas can be extended in simple ways to become more effective for next-generation HPC environments. This paper presents extensions to the common Vampir style plot that use high-definition alpha composition and color weaving. These two techniques incorporate new detail into the traditional plot style, providing useful information for HPC developers.
