## Continuous distributed monitoring: A short survey, Sept. 2011.
Invited keynote at Algorithms and Models for Distributed Event
Processing (AlMoDEP).

In the model of continuous distributed monitoring, a number of
observers each see a stream of observations. Their goal is to work
together to compute a function of the union of their observations.
This can be as simple as counting the total number of observations, or
more complex non-linear functions such as tracking the entropy of the
induced distribution. Assuming that it is too costly to simply
centralize all the observations, it becomes quite challenging to
design solutions which provide a good approximation to the current
answer, while bounding the communication cost of the observers, and
their other resources such as their space usage. This survey
introduces this model, and describe a selection results in this
setting, from the simple counting problem to a variety of other
functions that have been studied.
