I'll try to keep this short and condensed. I'm essentially looking for _your_
favorite app / procedure when faced with making sequence/context switching
graphs and would like to use the one that will be the most "appropriate" for
The "gists" of it:
I need to generate graphics of execution sequences to explain how a process
(ie: sGA, sMOGA) runs sequentially and then show where and how this process
can be split up. The graphics I am thinking of are traditionally horizontal
bars which are usually split up into multiple parallel sub-portions as the
process gets dissected by the author...me ;) . These bars can be commented
with either time ticks, variable names, zoomed portions, etc.
The usage context:
The intent of these graphics are for inclusion in a Latex document and
(hopefully) for publishing. The document itself intends to be a little
"HOWTO" for parallelisation of simple Multi Objective real coded Genetic
Algorithms into Master/Slave and/or Island topology in the context of a
The environment context:
I work only under linux, so no windows alternative ( like I'd get any :P ).
Some of the tools that come in mind:
Any comments about subjects mentioned above are more than welcommed!
