Large software landscapes are complex Systems-of-Systems. Systems are added to, modified in, or removed from the landscape at runtime. Architectural erosion typically occurs in such landscapes, resulting in increased maintenance and operation costs. Continuous monitoring can help to ensure the architecture conformance in such large landscapes. However, the emerging huge amounts of monitoring data have to be processed and presented in a scalable visualization.

In this paper, we present ExplorViz which aims for providing such a scalable live visualization of large software landscapes. We demonstrate how our visualization can be used for ensuring architecture conformance. Furthermore, we describe an applicability evaluation of ExplorViz concerning the prerequisite of scalability in our monitoring solution.
