The emerging distributed internet computing paradigms envision involvement of large conglomeration of dynamic and internet-wide distributed computing resources. Visualization is an indispensable tool to confront the challenge of managing such complex systems. We present a monitor messaging framework for visualizing the lifecycle of a multiparty decentralized process. This design can be used as a blueprint for an open standard based visualization protocol for emerging internet computing systems.
