Dynamic network operations can produce power fluctuations of the established connections in filterless optical networks. In addition, the gridless nature of filterless networks make that some (un)intentional effects such as transponders laser drift might disrupt the proper operation of lightpaths. To overcome these issues, we present a monitoring system exploiting data analytics and cost-effective optical spectrum analyzers to achieve smart filterless network operation. Experimental
