The DUNE Collaboration is conducting an experimental program (named protoDUNE) which involves a beam test of two large-scale prototypes of the DUNE Far Detector at CERN operating in 2018-2019. The volume of data to be collected by the protoDUNE-SP (the single-phase detector) will amount to a few petabytes and the sustained rate of data sent to mass storage is in the range of a few hundred MB per second. After collection the data is committed to storage at CERN and transmitted to Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in the US for processing, analysis and long-term preservation. The protoDUNE experiment requires substantial Data Quality Monitoring capabilities in order to ascertain the condition of the detector and its various subsystems. We present the design of the protoDUNE Prompt Processing System, its deployment at CERN and its performance during the data challenges and actual data taking.
