Being able to inspect neuronal network simulations while they are running provides new research strategies to neuroscientists as it enables them to perform actions like parameter adjustments in case the simulation performs unexpectedly. This can also save compute resources when such simulations are run on large supercomputers as errors can be detected and corrected earlier saving valuable compute time. This talk presents a prototypical pipeline that enables in-situ analysis and visualization of running simulations.
