The low cost and wide availability of PC-based clusters have made them an excellent alternative to access supercomputing. However, while network of workstations may be readily available, there is an increasing need for performance tools that support these platforms, in order to achieve even higher performance. One of possible ways to increase performance is parallel program restructuring. It is introduced in this paper a toolkit to generate graphical charts for visualization of MPI parallel programs, reflecting to its execution over time, with the use of DP*Graph representation, parallel version of timing graph. In other words, parallel programs are shown through charts its sequential codes, dependencies and communication structures in a particular cluster system platform. Still in this paper, it is discussed the implementation of this toolkit and present some experimental results obtained.
