The Check_MK Monitoring Appliance
The Check_MK Monitoring System makes life easier then ever when it comes to
a Nagios based monitoring setup. However, the setup and installation of the operating system
and the hardware still requires knowledge and time. The new Check_MK Appliance
goes one step further
The Check_MK Appliance saves you the time for selecting your system plattform. We offer a solution
with hardware and software that is optimally integrated and adapted to your needs. No Linux
knowledge es neccessary. After setting up the basic network settings the complete system is managable via
a web based user interface.
You can even setup several independent monitoring instances (sites) on one appliance, which
can use different versions of the Check_MK monitoring system. You can do your complete monitoring
without an access to a command line. Also in distributed environments the appliance is
powerful. Using standard devices on all locations speeds up initial setup and maintainance.
All configuration and application data is stored on a separate storage medium. In case
of need the device can thus be replaced very conveniantly.
The Check_MK rail2 is designed for industrial use. It is optimal in environments where space and power consumption matter. It is fit for being mounted on TS 35 DIN rails. The Check_MK rack1 uses the classical 19-inch format and with redundant power supplies is designed for being used in datacenters.

1 This is only a recommendation. The appliance is not limited in the number of hosts or services which can be monitored with this device.
2 We propose using SD cards from Swissbit (available as a supplement). They are designed for industrial use and much more reliable than standard SD cards.
3 The number of hosts depend on a powerful virtualization environment and are only valid if enough CPU, memory and disk IO bandwidth is available. In larger environments we suggest using the Check_MK rack1 or a dedicated server.
4 The data volume of the virtual appliance has been created with a dynamic size of up to 100 GB. This is usually enough for about 30,000 monitored services.
5 The usage of the Check_MK Appliances requires a subscription of the Check_MK Monitoring System for at least one year. The services that you monitor with your appliances are accounted for the dimension of the subscription. Within the subscription you have access to arbitrary updates of the appliance firmware and the Check_MK Monitoring System.
6 The stated shipping prices and times are valid for Germany. On request we will inform you with the charge in your desired location.
