General software information
Otter is a historical CAIDA tool used for visualizing arbitrary network data that can be expressed as a set of nodes, links or paths.
Specific software information
2D or 3D
Less than 100 000 nodes
Field of uses
Tool for Topology Display.
Otter was developed to handle visualization tasks for a wide variety of Internet data, including data sets on topology, workload, performance, and routing. to visualize: multicast and unicast topology databases, core BGP routing tables, reachability and delay measurements, SNMP data, and web site directory structures.
1. each data set may have a different number of attributes, or particular characteristics of the data of visualization interest; 2. attributes may be of different types; 3. nodes, links, and paths, and attributes may have fundamentally different semantics across data sets; 4. some graph layout algorithms may not make sense for some data sets.
Interactivity with the graph
Manually tuning the graph layout, changing the status of root nodes (i.e., turning non-root nodes into roots and vice versa), moving nodes or sub-trees around, and focusing on a specific region of the graph.
