Catalyst 2.0: Debugging support
With 5.9 release, ParaView introduced a new API for in situ data analysis and visualization. This new API has the potential to simplify debugging data analysis pipelines by making it possible to reproduce the in situ issues in a post-hoc workflow. This task involves developing this capability. For simulations using this new Catalyst API, Kitware will add the ability to serialize all data passed to the in situ analysis and then reload it in a post-hoc environment to reproduce issues for easier debugging. This also makes it possible to add tests based on actual data dumps obtained from simulation codes to minimize regressions between ParaView releases.
