The first performance visualization tool integrated into the FIELD environment was xprof a simple interface to the information gathered by the profserver described in Section 6.2. The initial implementation combined the two, so that the tool both gathered and displayed the relevant information. The current implementation separates these two tasks so that other tools can have message-based access to the performance data without the user running the visualization front end.
