The understanding of noise in interferometric gravitational wave detectors is fundamental in terms of both enabling prompt reactions in the mitigation of noise disturbances and in the establishment of appropriate data-cleaning strategies. Monitoring tools to perform online and offline noise analysis in areas such as transient signal detection, line identification algorithms and coherence are used to characterise the Virgo detector noise. In this paper, we describe the framework into which these tools are integrated - the Noise Monitor Application Programming Interface (NMAPI) - and provide examples of its application.
