CATALYST_DATA_DUMPS is an excellent way to debug catalyst instrumentation. When set, catalyst dumps out all conduit datasets to a directory and then one is expected to use
catalyst_replay to replay the simulation. What I am finding myself do is use replay to run a simple pipeline to save the data as
vtpd and then open it in paraview to inspect. Instead, if I could just open the directory in which all the conduit data is in ParaView directly, that’d be great!
In otherwords, I want a data-reader that reads the data dumps generated by catalyst for each “execute” set and read those in as timesteps in ParaView itself.
Shouldn’t be too hard to implement, but I’d expect be extremely handy to debug simulation / instrumentations. Thoughts?
