The NGOP Monitoring Project at FNAL has developed a package which has demonstrated the capability to efficiently monitor tens of thousands of entities on thousands of hosts, and has been in operation for over 4 years. The project has met the majority of its initial reqirements, and also the majority of the requirements discovered along the way. This paper will describe what worked, and what did not, in the first 4 years of the NGOP Project at Fermilab; and we hope will provide valuable lessons for others considering undertaking even larger (GRID-scale) monitoring projects.
