I'm confused what you're looking for here, but thought I'd venture a
suggestion.

There are GUI-based performance analysis and tracing tools. E.g., run a
program, [[semi-]automatically] collect performance data, run a
GUI-based analysis tool on the data, visualize what happened on your
cluster. Would this suit your purposes?

If so, there are a variety of tools out there you could try. Some are
platform-specific or cost money. Some are widely/freely available.
Examples of these tools include Intel Trace Analyzer, Jumpshot, Vampir,
TAU, etc. I do know that Sun Studio (Performance Analyzer) is available
via free download on x86 and SPARC and Linux and Solaris and works with
OMPI. Possibly the same with Jumpshot. VampirTrace instrumentation is
already in OMPI, but then you need to figure out the analysis-tool
part. (I think the Vampir GUI tool requires a license, but I'm not
sure. Maybe you can convert to TAU, which is probably available for
free download.)

Anyhow, I don't even know if that sort of thing fits your requirements.
Just an idea.
