In Situ Temporal Caching
DescriptionIn certain simulation analyses, events may occur which justify further in situ processing. Sometimes, however, when the events do occur the phenomenon of interest is the physics that precipitated the events and this may be the key insight into understanding the phenomenon that is being simulated. In situ temporal caching is the temporary storing of datasets for possible later analysis and temporal visualization. The later analysis and visualization still occurs during the simulation run but not until the significant events have been detected. The notable contribution of this paper is the ability to temporarily cache a number of time steps in fast memory for ex-post-facto in situ use.
