Running ALPS using Vistrails

Introduction to VisTrails

VisTrails is a provenance-enabled workflow system, allowing one to perform all steps from data preparation to the final plot in one graphical workflow system. An added advantage is that the final figures can link back to the workflow that created them, thus giving access to all details of the calculation that led to the final image. For a detailed introduction to VisTrails we refer to the documentation on the VisTrails page. Don't let the visualization examples there scare you off - VisTrails is far more than a visualization system for medical images.

Running ALPS using Vistrails should be straightforward to lerarn from the tutorials and especially the simple workflows below.

The history view

The History view of VisTrails shows a history tree of all the modifications done to your workflows. Important versions should be tagged by labels and can have notes added. An example of a workflow tree is shown here:

Below we will walk you through the various example workflows in this tree.

Exporting input files to run a simulation elsewhere

Loading results from a simulation runs elsewhere

Making plots using grace or gnuplot
