I am looking to plot the physics - position velocity and acceleration . I can see 2 approach 1. gzlog and somehow taking the data from the terminal screen to plot it. (appears that gzlog was not created for plotting though !) 2. create a plugin that publishes this data and then plotting from code.

Please advise which of the above is smarter?

If you use Gazebo 8, there is a built-in plotting tool which supports exporting to CSV and PDF:

That looks pretty cool. What would be the best option for Gazebo 7?

Unfortunately I think a custom plugin which prints/plots the data you need would be your best bet
