Automated, dynamic cloud monitoring

Upcoming feature: Monitoring your cloud environments will be radically simplified with Checkmk 1.6.

The already existing auto-discovery for services will be complemented by the Dynamic Configuration Daemon for hosts. This means no more manual adding and removing of hosts (e.g. your EC2 instances) into your monitoring - this will be done automatically by Checkmk.

Thus, you will benefit from an automatic detection, configuration and mapping of your hosts, services and nodes.


With Checkmk we have visibility and insight into the systems and applications that power our business. We know the lifecycle and usage patterns of our systems thanks to Checkmk and this is really a powerful feature when making important business decisions regarding these systems.

We do not have to do guess work, it is a matter of pulling up the right view or generating the report and looking at the details..

Marius P. - CEO

Avoids most of the headaches you get with the heavyweight solutions, that spend most of the time pumping monitoring data through a classical SQL database.

It monitors eveything from network equipment, Power supply, Hardware, OS, virtualisation technology, databases, storage systems, backup and even modern stacks like docker. Also helps with automated SLA reports und software/hardware inventory.

Great value for your money, there is also a community edition for tight budgets.
