TDT network monitoring with Checkmk

Professionelles Monitoring – zertifizierte Experten

"Made in Germany": The TDT company has stood for security and innovation in telecommunications since 1978. With the professional monitoring of TDT and Checkmk you have the security that your network is in good hands at all times - with a company that was certified according to BSI in 2017.

TDT's Checkmk monitoring system is a comprehensive solution for professional monitoring of networks, hardware and data centres as well as applications and operating systems. TDT-Checkmk is based on Open Source and the optimised Checkmk "Micro-Core", which is a further development of the proven Nagios core.

The IT monitoring system is particularly suitable for branch and sales outlet networks. To save resources, the monitored devices are only contacted once in each check interval and all data is transmitted in the form of a "passive check". Supported by Checkmk's own "Micro-Core", excellent performance is guaranteed, even with a large number of hosts and services to be monitored.

 

This allows shorter inspection intervals to be realised, which means that alarms can be triggered more quickly if necessary and measurement data, e.g. network utilisation, can be recorded much more accurately. Several independent monitoring servers can be combined into a virtual overall system - for monitoring distributed over different locations or for load distribution. In this case, the configuration can be centrally pflegen and is automatically distributed.

You keep the "overview" - even with large networks and complex applications - through the structured Web-Oberfläche. Here the network manager and the helpdesk receive all relevant data quickly and clearly displayed. Thanks to the individually adaptable, multi-level alarm system, you are always up to date and are actively informed of any anomalies by e-mail or, in the case of critical components, also by SMS or pushover.

TDT devices can be seamlessly and quickly integrated into an existing monitoring system at any time. The Checkmk-Agent is permanently integrated into our firmware and is therefore available as standard on all devices.

Thus all important parameters of your TDT router can be monitored. Checks specially adapted to our TDT routers read out radio and DSL parameters, among other things, and display them clearly in the monitoring.
