Detectors with diamond sensors are used in the CMS experiment and along the LHC ring to monitor beam conditions. The fast system BCM1F in CMS using single crystal diamond sensors allows bunch by bunch measurements with nanosecond time resolution. Operating right from the very first beams in CMS it was extended to deliver the online luminosity of the experiment. Similar detectors were also installed at critical positions of the LHC. The talk will review the performance and give an outlook to the upgrade in the current shutdown.
