Is there a tool for job metadata visualization?

mmahmmah Member, Broadie

I am running Cromwell java -Dconfig.file=./my.conf -jar cromwell-26.jar run workflow.wdl workflow.json - job_metadata. I would like to see a visualization of the job_metadata JSON output to understand what parts of the workflow are consuming the most computing time.

Is there an available tool to visualize this Cromwell output? I have seen a Firecloud visualization that looks like a Gantt chart, but my Cromwell instance is not running in Firecloud.

    How can I view this chart if I am not running the workflow in server mode? Can I take the metadata output from a Cromwell instance running in standalone mode and feed this to an instance in server mode?
