dynaTrace Diagnostics provides the ability to view runtime behavior in
diagrams. This is not the tools primary purpose but I'm always
surprised how much people like this feature. The tool is really a
runtime performance diagnostics tool.
It's commercial and high end, so you wont find it on sourceforge. :)
see me for more details if you want screenshots of what it provides.
Shameless Disclaimer: Blah, blah, blah, I blah work for blah blah
dynatrace blah blah...
