This paper briefly presents a model for monitoring a large, heterogeneous and geographically scattered computer park. The data collection is performed by a software agent. The collected data are sent to the central server over the Internet, and stored by the storage system. An on-line portal makes up the visualization system, featuring charts, reports, and other tools for assessing the state of the park. This system is currently monitoring circa 150,000 machines.
