The connection of Checkmk with i-doit pro is unrestrictedly recommended for all users who want to combine a monitoring solution with IT documentation.

Application scenarios of Checkmk Add-on 2

The use of Checkmk Add-on 2 is conceivable from two perspectives. On the one hand, users of i-doit can make sure that objects are directly configured in the CMDB using the extension of Checkmk and that no new devices are put into operation without monitoring. Information about the current status of the objects is another benefit.

On the other hand, the connection between Checkmk and the CMDB of i-doit with this add-on offers considerable advantages for monitoring specialists. Particularly noteworthy here is the comparison between the target and actual state of the company-wide IT infrastructure. If there are status changes of business-critical objects the user knows exactly where they take place and can directly look up what to do in this case.

What is the difference between Checkmk add-on 1 and Checkmk add-on 2?

For a long time the combination of the products i-doit and Checkmk is a well-proven solution for those users, who would like to link the benefits of a CMDB with a comfortable network monitoring. Checkmk add-on 2 offers new possibilities in the connection between CMDB and monitoring. Here are the significant differences:
