Checkmk support options

Enterprise-grade support:

Enterprise support can be delivered through us, the developers of Checkmk, as well as through our qualified local partners. Different support options are available.

Type of support

‚Vendor support‘: provides the right to have a support contract directly with us. The actual support is not included in this pricing but is either billed on demand (Credits) or is covered via the Break/Fix Support option.
‚Support via partner‘: Alternatively we will hand over your request to one of our capable local partners.

Break/Fix Support

For an annual flat fee we support you in resolving bugs and problems in stable CEE or MSE versions, up to three years after the first stable release of the respective version was released. Under this option, bugs and problems are resolved without additional cost to you.

Response time

Guarantees 1st-level support response times of 24 or 8 hours respectively during normal German working hours (Mon-Fri). Please contact us if you require 24/7 support.

Ticketing support

Support and services that are not covered by a potential Break/Fix option are billed in form of ‚Credits‘. One Credit is equivalent to one quarter of an hour of work. You can either buy credits in advance (‚prepaid‘) or you are billed later on base of the actually used credits (‚on demand‘). Credits are valid for 12 months after purchase.

Payment model

‚Prepaid‘: Purchase credit packages in advance. Provides budget stability. Is targeted at support questions. May be used for customer-specific feature developments – this usage, however, cannot not be guaranteed[3]
‚On demand‘: Support is billed based on actual usage. Cost only incur with support requests. Quarterly billing.

[1] For customers outside of Germany the corresponding international tax regulations apply.
[2] How to estimate the number of services to be monitored can be found in our FAQ. If you are already a user of the Enterprise Edition, you can find the number of currently used services in the Tactical Overview in the left corner of the Checkmk GUI. You have to be logged in as an Admin or Guest User to get the right number. If you have several installations or are using a distributed monitoring set-up, you need to sum up the services of the individual installations.
[3] The decision to take on customer-specific development requests depends on the current workload of the development team and the strategic development priorities.
