The Low Energy RHIC Electron Cooling (LEReC) facility at BNL demonstrated, for the first time, cooling of ion beams using a bunched electron beam from an SRF accelerating cavity and photoinjector. LEReC is planned to be operational to improve the luminosity of the Beam Energy Scan II physics program in RHIC in the following two years. In order to establish cooling of the RHIC Au ion beam using a 20 mA, 1.6 MeV bunched electron beam; absolute energy, angular and energy spread, trajectory and beam size were precisely matched. A suite of instrumentation was commissioned that includes a variety of current transformers, capacitive pick-up for gun high voltage ripple monitor, BPMs, transverse and longitudinal profile monitors, multi-slit and single-slit scanning emittance stations, time-of-flight and magnetic field related energy measurements, beam halo & loss monitors and recombination monitors. The commissioning results and performance of these systems are described, including the latest design efforts of high-power electron beam transverse profile monitoring using a fast wire scanner, residual gas beam induced fluorescence monitor, and Boron Nitride NanoTube (BNNT) screen monitor
