The ATLAS detector allows for the precise and efficient reconstruction of muons. Muon tracks are reconstructed with 97% efficiency with a momentum resolution of approximately 2-3% over most of the kinematic range and better than 10% for transverse momenta up to 1 TeV and |η| <2.7. We present methods to measure the performance of the muon identification during the operation of the ATLAS detector using muons from Z and J/ψdecays.
