Virtual server monitoring is already integrated in Checkmk, so that your virtual machines can be monitored with almost no additional set-up. Checkmk itself can also be run on a virtual server infrastructure within the virtual appliance.

Centralized Asset Management

The Checkmk hardware & software inventory is built to automatically discover and manage your hardware & software asset information on all servers and workstations being monitored.

Easily identify hosts with vulnerable and outdated software versions, so that you can act to secure your IT. Checkmk also stores the history of the inventory of a server and helps you track changes in your environment, e.g. a BIOS update, RAM upgrade.
