Animating Multicore Erlang

As a part of the RELEASE project we've been looking at how to visualise Erlang computations on multicore systems. We've started by extending the Percept tool to Percept2, and you can see a presentation about that, from the Erlang Factory Lite in London here.

We're beginning to look at how we can present real-time results, and as a half-way house we've been experimenting with animating computations. We've made a video that animates run-queue lengths and process migrations for a computation on a 24 core machine (well 12 cores with hyper-threading, in fact). Any comments or suggestions that you have would be very welcome.
