Introducing Radar - by Bill Palombi

Blog post discussing the new way of visualizing workflows at any scale in Orion.

Key points:

  • Since Orion break the DAG paradigm, the workflow is visualized at runtime — the graph “unfolds” as execution proceeds
  • Radar is designed to handle a massive amount of parallel task runs, including arbitrary fan-out, fan-in, and passing data dependencies (visualized through straight lines)
  • Users can zoom and pan across the canvas to discover and inspect tasks of interest
