Scalable monitoring for large IT environments

For large and complex IT monitoring setups we offer custom pricing.

This option is available for Checkmk installations that will monitor more than 200.000 services and covers the following ranges:

  • 200,000 - 300,000
  • 300,000 - 500,000
  • 500,000 - 1,000,000
  • 1,000,000 - 2,000,000
  • 2,000,000+

What is a service?
A service can be anything – for example, a file system, a process, a hardware sensor, a switchport – but it can also just be a specific metric like CPU usage or RAM usage.

How do I know how many services I need?
Our licensing options are based on the number of services, not the number of hosts/devices. Most of our customers use approximately 30 services per host.

Please fill out the form and a Checkmk representative will contact you to discuss a customized plan that fits your needs.

How well Checkmk scales

A large food retailer in Germany uses Checkmk to monitor its infrastructure. This is their IT monitoring:


stores connected nationwide


devices monitored

5 Million

services monitored

7.5 Billion

checks executed per day

The whole Checkmk environment has a very mature, stable foundation of supported checks and performance counters. Yet it grows almost on a daily basis.

Support for new systems is being implemented very often and if you are willing to request it yourself, you can have it included in the core distribution in very little time. This agility really has no match among the larger competitors.
