Checkmk network monitoring benefits

Intelligent Auto-discovery

Checkmk comes with a lot of functionality that makes IT monitoring easier for system administrators. Auto-discovery takes away all the cumbersome work from monitoring your SNMP devices on your network. All the relevant services to prevent downtime and avoid performance bottlenecks will be added automatically to your monitoring for all the devices you monitor via SNMP.

Over many years, we have built one of the most comprehensive plug-ins libraries for monitoring together with our customers, building on their deep know-how on IT infrastructure.

Detect equipment from multiple vendors and start monitoring for device availability, fault, and performance.

Clever handling of SNMP Traps

Checkmk comes with fully-integrated system for the monitoring of events from sources such as SNMP traps, but also Syslog, Windows Event Logs, Log Files and user's applications: The Event Console.

The Event Console is ideal for SNMP traps as it is optimised for simplicity, robustness and helps to intelligently filter a limited number of relevant messages from a large stream.

Correlate, combine, count, annotate and transcribe messages to handle all the data coming from your SNMP traps.

Get started immediately as the Event Console comes with its own SNMP-Engine eliminating any need for additional tools.

Gerd S. - Teamlead Monitoring

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.
