Keyword(s): diagnostic; synchronization; web; visualization

Abstract: SmallSync, an internet event synchronizer, is intended to provide a monitoring and visualization methodology for permitting simultaneous analysis and control of multiple remote processes on the web. The current SmallSync includes: (1) a mechanism to multicast web window-based commands, message passing events and process execution events among processes; (2) an event synchronizer to allow concurrent execution of some functions on multiple machines; (3) a means to report when these events cause errors in the processes; and (4) ad hoc visualization of process states using existing visualizers.
