Hosts have approximately 30 services each, on average. However, a database host or a core switch may have a much larger number of services. A service may be anything – for example, a file system, a hardware sensor, or a switch port – but it can also be a specific metric, such as CPU usage. Check out our service calculator.
We believe that services are the fairest metric to calculate pricing: a Wi-Fi access point has way fewer aspects requiring monitoring compared to a database server, thus it should also cost less!
No, our subscription model continues to be based on services, and we do not place any restrictions or impose any additional charges beyond the number of services in your subscription.
You can upgrade to the Cloud Edition at any time. Please contact our sales team for details.
Trials of Checkmk are now easier than ever – simply download the latest build of the Checkmk Cloud Edition and start using it. This will automatically start a 30-day trial period. You can also continue using the Cloud Edition in Free mode for as long as you want. Free mode does not require a license and is limited to 750 services and one site.
The Checkmk Cloud Edition includes all features of the Enterprise Edition. The best way to test the Enterprise Edition is to use the Checkmk Cloud in Trial mode. Features that are exclusive to the Cloud Edition (e.g., cloud dashboards, push agent, etc.) are marked as such in the GUI, so you won’t risk testing anything that won’t be available later on. You can also continue using the Cloud Edition in Free mode for as long as you want. Free mode does not require a license and is limited to 750 services and one site.
The easiest way to get started with a POC is to simply install the Cloud Edition, create a new site, and use the 30-day trial period. If you need more than 30 days to build your POC, please contact our sales team, who will be able to issue a POC license.
Yes, you can deploy the Checkmk Cloud Edition from the AWS and Azure cloud marketplaces and natively run your sites directly in your respective tenants. The same licensing mechanism applies to sites launched from a cloud marketplace. Our Azure and AWS marketplace listings use the ‘Bring your own license’ (BYOL) model, so you can use the same application account in sites deployed by one of these marketplaces.
There are two different support packages to address the needs of different users: Pro and Advanced. Check out our support page for more details.
