With the increasing complexity of large­scale distributed
(LSD) systems, an efficient monitoring mechanism has
become an essential service for improving the perfor­
mance and reliability of such complex applications. This
paper presents a scalable, dynamic, flexible and non­
intrusive monitoring architecture for managing large­scale
distributed (LSD) systems. This architecture, which is re­
ferred to as the HiFi monitoring system, detects and clas­
sifies interesting primitive and composite events and per­
forms either a corrective or steering action. When appro­
priate, information is also disseminated to management ap­
plications, such reactive control tools. The outlined solution
offers improvements over related works by supporting new
