I don't know what you mean "permission to load a new tool on the cluster". You
can install SimulationTools into your home directory, as described in the
installation instructions. This should not need any special technical
permissions. If this is what you tried, and it doesn't work, can you give some
more details about what you did and what went wrong?
If you mean that you are not *allowed* to install external software in your
home directory, then I don't know how you can use SimulationTools on the
cluster, as it would need to be installed. In any case, in order to visualise
the data, you will need a graphical display, so presumably you would need to
use Mathematica with X forwarding or similar. Unless you have quite a fast
connection to the cluster, this might be too slow to be usable. There is no
problem with using SimulationTools in Mathematica from the command line or in
scripts, but I suspect that's not really what you need.
What I usually do is copy the required data from the cluster to my laptop, and
visualise it with SimulationTools in Mathematica on my laptop. If the data is
too big to transfer, I use Mathematica's "remote kernel" feature, where the
notebook interface runs on my laptop, and the kernel runs on the cluster, where
it can directly access the data. This way, only the visualisation needs to be
sent over the network, not the original raw data. Of course, Mathematica is
very expensive, so this might not be an ideal solution for you.
