Not only can Checkmk be installed within minutes, it can also be configured with little effort. In addition to automatic detection and configuration of components, Checkmk suggests the necessary metrics and thresholds for the monitoring. A rule-based 1-to-n configuration noticeably reduces monitoring overhead, even in complex IT environments with thousands of hosts.
With Checkmk, the administration of your monitoring environment can be conveniently handled centrally – even across multiple locations – via a web-based GUI. Manual and therefore error-prone editing of configuration files is no longer necessary. The auto-discovery function identifies all services for your monitoring – you no longer need Linux knowledge for this. Checkmk not only has more than 1,900 plug-ins, but it also includes agent-based monitoring with automated, centralized agent updates via the Agent Bakery.
