Five-day training in Checkmk for beginners

In our basic course System Monitoring with Checkmk , you learn how to set up a professional monitoring system and structure it in a sensible way, to monitor the network, servers, operating systems and applications. You do not need any Linux expertise. All that you need to know, you will learn in the course.

First, we install Checkmk on a normal Linux server that we provide. Then we'll take a step-by-step approach to monitoring Linux and Windows, network devices and services, and applications. You will learn how Checkmk works.
