Conceptual overview of graphs in Kubeflow Pipelines

A graph is a pictorial representation in the Kubeflow Pipelines UI of the runtime execution of a pipeline. The graph shows the steps that a pipeline run has executed or is executing, with arrows indicating the parent/child relationships between the pipeline components represented by each step. The graph is viewable as soon as the run begins. Each node within the graph corresponds to a step within the pipeline and is labeled accordingly.

The screenshot below shows an example of a pipeline graph:

At the top right of each node is an icon indicating its status: running, succeeded, failed, or skipped. (A node can be skipped when its parent contains a conditional clause.)
