Abstract: The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) is currently the largest radio telescope on earth and is composed by 66 Antennas located at the Chajnantor plateau at 5000 meters of altitude (Atacama desert in northern Chile). Even that ALMA has entered into operations in 2013, its capabilities are still being evolving each observing cycle. The increasing of ALMA Software products and operational requirement has resulted not only in a high number of server and services to monitored, but also, in modifications on the infrastructure schema. Previous solutions being used at the Observatory does not easily cope with the current ONLINE production infrastructure schema, leading to an increased overhead in terms of maintainability and scalability of the monitoring infrastructure. Given that, an evaluation of alternative monitoring solutions was performed in order to fulfill the current monitoring requirements.
