The University of Oxford Tier-2 Grid cluster converted to using HTCondor in 2014. At that time, there was no suitable monitoring tool available. The Oxford team developed a command line tool, written in Python, that displays snapshot information about the running jobs. The tool provides the capability of reporting on the number of jobs running on a given node and the efficiency of each job. Further development resulted in a web-based display, which continuously updates the status of jobs running on the cluster. Details of the development of the tool and it’s features will be presented.
