The Baikal-GVD is a cubic kilometer scale neutrino telescope which is deployed in Lake Baikal,
that will perform neutrino astronomy studies. It consists of sub-arrays - clusters of about 300
optical modules each, that detect the Cherenkov light radiated by charged particles induced by
neutrino interactions with the surrounding medium. The performance of the neutrino telescope
relies on the precise timing and positioning calibration of the detector elements, continuous
control and monitoring of a behavior of measuring systems, as well as environmental conditions
which may affect light detection and event selection. This contribution describes the units which
are used in GVD for calibration and monitoring purposes.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
