Checkmk - Your complete IT monitoring solution

Checkmk can be installed on Linux servers via DEB and RPM packages found on our downloads page. The Enterprise Edition is also available as a virtual or physical appliance. The following short installation guides show how you can easily set up Checkmk and begin monitoring.

Building on your own packages

It is highly recommended to use the prebuilt Checkmk packages we provide. But if you really want to build your own packages, you either need to download the source packages from our website or check out the Git repository.

To prepare your system for building, you need to execute this command:

make -C omd setup

This will install the missing build dependencies, at least if you are working on a supported Linux distribution. Then you can either create RPM or DEB packages, depending on your Linux distribution.

To build an RPM:

make rpm

To create a DEB package:

DEBFULLNAME="Mr. Buildmaster" DEBEMAIL="[email protected]" make deb

Don't forget to insert your name and mail address. As a result you should find packages of the form check-mk-[edition]-[version].[deb|rpm] in your current directory.
