We present the status of the ultracryogenic gravitational wave detector AURIGA, which is taking data since may 1997 with an energy sensitivity in the mK range and bandwidth greater than 1 Hz. The typical detector output is summarized in daily reports which are important tools for detector diagnostic and for checking the vetoes of periods of unsatisfactory operation of the detector. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
