Task scheduling is one of the most prominent problems in the era of parallel computing. We find scheduling algorithms in every domain of computer science, e.g., mapping multiprocessor tasks to clusters, mapping jobs to grid resources, or mapping fine-grained tasks to cores of multicore processors. Many tools exist that help understand or debug an application by presenting visual representations of a certain program run, e.g., visualizations of MPI traces. However, often developers want to get a global and abstract view of their schedules first. In this paper we introduce Jedule, a tool dedicated to visualize schedules of parallel applications. We demonstrate the effectiveness of Jedule by showing how it helped analyzing problems in several case studies.
