In this paper we propose GRAMS, a resource monitoring and analysis system in Grid environment. GRAMS provides an infrastructure for conducting online monitoring and performance analysis of a variety of Grid resources including computational and network devices. Based on analysis on real-time event data as well as historical performance data, steering strategies are given for users or resource scheduler to control the resources. Besides, GRAMS also provides a set of management tools and services portals for user not only to access performance data but also to handle these resources.
