IN-browser : a graphical browser for interaction networks
The Interaction Network (IN) is a way of representing the execution of an interaction in a loosely-coupled distributed system. Much work has been put into the development and refinement of command-line programs to record and analyse these INs. This project is aimed at providing a graphical display for INs and access to statistics summarised from the INs. In a broader sense, it aims to provide a greater understanding of INs. A brief discussion of related work is presented. The major design and implementation approaches to the browser, IN-browser, are described, followed by observations drawn from running IN-browser on an IN recorded during the compilation and linking of a simple C program. The usefulness of IN-browser as an analysis tool is discussed.
