Monitoring is an important aspect of any job scheduling environment, and Grid computing is no exception. Writing quality monitoring tools is however a hard proposition, so the Open Science Grid decided to leverage existing enterprise-class tools in the context of the glideinWMS pilot infrastructure, which powers a large fraction of its Grid computing. The product chosen is the CycleServer, created and maintained by Cycle Computing LLC, for which OSG negotiated a very advantageous licensing deal. In this poster we present an overview of its features, alongside the experience of its use by several OSG VOs.
