The total amount of information to process or analyze is jumping sharply with the quick spread of computers and networks. Our project, «Highly scalable monitoring architecture for information explosion», develops a monitoring system allows observing systems, merging the system logs, and discovering intelligence to share. More concretely, the project builds the total system to maintain, optimize, and protect autonomically. This paper reports the outcomes of the project after first-half of the development period.The rest of the paper is organized as follows. Section 2 describes the concept and details of the monitoring system on a single node, and Section 3 addresses the aggregation of the collected information in distributed environments. Section 4 and Section 5 introduce applications of the monitoring systems. Section 6 summarizes the project and mentions future plans.
