I'm guessing you mean the xplot/netplot displays from Jim Gettys and
Keith Packard's talk about X Window System performance - 
(http://keithp.com/~keithp/talks/usenix2003/).

It's certainly related to the kind of thing I'm talking about here,
though I'm not sure its quite directly applicable... it applies
more to displaying how well disk read-ahead is working for a particular
application, then to viewing the dependency graph for a set of
processes.

I'd agree it's a relevant reference point,
