As mobile platforms become increasingly popular, the area of system monitoring would likely need to adopt some of the design methods and techniques for mobile usage, which includes exaggeration of size and importance emphasis, less complexity and perception enchanting techniques. This report investigates and suggests alternative methods for visualizing system monitoring data with main focus on mobile device displays. Alternative methods for system monitoring are identified and suggested. An experiment is conducted, where a classic monitoring tool is thoroughly compared to a new tool especially constructed for exploiting alternative methods of enchanting data. The data from the experiment proves a significant difference in findings when alternativemethods are compared to the classic tool.
