checkmk conference #5

April 28th-30th, 2019 | Munich

The last Checkmk Conferences were an enormous success and we are glad to meet again from April 28th to April 30th 2019 in Munich. Our international users are invited to be part of the conference, as we'll have English and German live interpreters during all speeches this year.

The Checkmk Conference is your unique opportunity to exchange views and experiences with other users and developers from all over the world and to meet the Checkmk team personally. You will learn about the newest developments and we guarantee again interesting and insightful speeches.

Currently we are arranging an entertaining supporting program for you and we are already looking forward to enjoying the open and relaxed atmosphere together with you!

Location: Holiday Inn Hotel at Hochstraße 3, 81669 Munich


This the agenda for the 5th Checkmk conference. This year, we will provide you with a look under the hood of the Checkmk development, introduce major additions to Checkmk to monitor highly dynamic environments and cloud services. Experts from the monitoring community will present best practices from their implementations.

This year, we will also have a small workshop track in parallel, where one of our consultants will discuss best practices and show you how to configure Checkmk optimally.
