This doesn't scan right to me.  "system latency visualization tool" would be
ok, but I think "tool for system latency visualization" or "tool for
visualizing system latencies" would be better.

If it's a tool targeted at developers, I don't think it's inappropriate to
mention in the short description (space allowing).
