2,000 official plug-ins for Checkmk: Presenting the Prometheus Alert Manager

The Prometheus Alert Manager is the 2,000th official monitoring plug-in for Checkmk. tribe29 aims to continue to grow the range of supported solutions.

MUNICH, Germany, March 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — tribe29, the company behind the Checkmk IT monitoring solution, today presented the Prometheus Alert Manager as its official Checkmk monitoring plug-in number 2,000.

Prometheus is widely used to monitor Kubernetes, and is popular among developers. The already existing integration of Prometheus with Checkmk allows pulling of monitoring data directly from Prometheus into the Checkmk platform. However, with the Prometheus Alert Manager, Checkmk can now also integrate alerts from Prometheus into Checkmk. This allows users to manage all policies around notifications and escalations for all IT assets monitored in both solutions in one central place. The plug-in also provides ITOps teams and other Checkmk users with full visibility into ongoing issues, without having to use another tool or needing to log into Prometheus.

The Prometheus Alert Manager tightens the integration of the two best-of-breed monitoring solutions and helps DevOps and ITOps teams to work more efficiently. ITOps professionals can react faster and also immediately see whether an alert in Prometheus could have been related to issues with other IT assets being monitored with Checkmk. This saves time and helps to increase uptime, because issues can be solved more efficiently. It also reduces the workload of IT teams, since less manual interaction is necessary.

“The Prometheus Alert Manager integration highlights several important key principles of Checkmk: Flexibility, integratability and open source. Like all official Checkmk plug-ins, it is maintained by our developers to ensure reliable out-of-the-box functionality in any environment. It also follows our vision of developing powerful integrations with other leading solutions to build open observability ecosystems. This integration of Checkmk and Prometheus is a great example of how open source approaches can work together to master the latest monitoring challenges,” said Jan Justus, CEO of tribe29.

Alongside the 2,000 official plug-ins, tribe29 is also pleased with the growing number of community plug-ins available in the Checkmk Exchange. On this website, members of the Checkmk community can upload and share their self-written plug-ins. More than 400 monitoring plug-ins developed and maintained by community members are already available and add value to all of the monitoring application scenarios that are not covered by the existing 2,000 official Checkmk monitoring plug-ins.

The Prometheus Alert Manager is included in the beta version of Checkmk 2.1 that is available on the download page on the Checkmk website.
