A key aspect of pilot-based grid operations are the GlideinWMS pilot factories. A proper and efficient use of any central block in the grid infrastructure for operations is inevitable, and GlideinWMS factories are no exception. The monitoring package for the GlideinWMS factory was originally developed when the factories were serving a couple of VOs and tens of sites. Today with the factories serving tens of VOs and hundreds of sites around the globe an update of the monitoring is due. Moreover with the new availability of industry open source storage and graphing packages an opportunity remains open.This work presents the changes made to the factory monitoring to leverage different technologies: Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, Grafana, and InfluxDB to provide a centralized view of the status and work of several GlideinWMS factories located in different continents around the globe.
