Between 1994 and 1997, researchers at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) investigated methods for distributing parallel computation and data visualization under the support of an internally funded Research Initiative Program entitled the Advanced Visualization Technology Project (AVTP). A hierarchical data cache architecture was developed to provide a flexible interface between the modeling or simulation computational processes and data visualization programs. Compared to conventional post facto data visualization approaches, this data cache structure provides many advantages including simultaneous data access by multiple visualization clients, comparison of experimental and simulated data, and visual analysis of computer simulation as computation proceeds. However, since the data cache was resident on a single workstation, this approach did not address the issue of scalability of methods for avoiding the data storage bottleneck by distributing the data across multiple networked workstations. Scalability through distributed database approaches is being investigated as part of the Applied Visualization using Advanced Network Technology Infrastructure (AVANTI) project. This paper describes a methodology currently under development that is intended to avoid bottlenecks that typically arise as the result of data consumers (e.g. visualization applications) that must access and process large amounts of data that has been generated and resides on other hosts, and which must pass through a central data cache prior to being used by the data consumer
