Paper Abstract

The Chandra X-Ray Observatory was launched in July, 1999 and has yielded extraordinary scientific results. Behind the scenes, our Monitoring and Trends Analysis (MTA) approach has proven to be a valuable resource in providing telescope diagnostic information and analysis of scientific data to access Observatory performance. We have created and maintain real-time monitoring and long-term trending tools. This paper will update our 2002 SPIE paper on the design of the system and discuss lessons learned.
