10. ViewData Viewing Data

In this section, we’ll go over the ways we can view results and data after execution of our workflow.

10.1. |list| Worker Results

We can view results for individual workers by clicking on them in run mode.

Figure 1: Click on Worker


Here, we are reviewing the Curves Overlay worker inputs and outputs from the execution. Click on any of the View Buttons to see the data results.

Figure 2: Curves Overlay Execution Overview


We’re looking at Curves Overlay output in the Curve Results Viewer.

Figure 3: Curves Overlay Output Results


10.2. |eye| Viewer Results

Under the eye icon in the left-side menu, we can view all data inputed and extracted from our execution. For example, we can view all curves which includes all input and output curves.

Figure 4: Viewers: View All Curves


Here, we can use the right side-panel to navigated through all the curves in our workflow.

Birds eye view is minimized by default in Workflows page.

Birds eye view


10.3. |wrench| Execution Tools

Under the tools menu, we can view the execution time statistics and download the report.

Figure 6: Execution Tools


Execution Time Stats gives us a summary of time allotted to each work during the execution.

Figure 7: Execution Time Stats


Play Controls

Also under the Tools menu, we can hide/show the floating play controls (1). These floating controls also have an Info button (2) where we can review the worker execution as a bar graph.

Figure 8: Play Controls


10.4. |line-chart| Curve Viewer

Visualize your workflow through our curve viewer located in the Data Viewer section of the navigation menu. The following image maps out the curve viewer features listed below.
