Hello Checkmk Community,

We have released a new blog from our very own @gulaschcowboy!

Monitoring your network: Four rules to rule them all

In this blog you’ll learn how to keep track of all interfaces of your switches without being overwhelmed with false alerts. There are a few tricks to adjust an automated discovery process, so you end up with a comprehensive overview and don’t have to spend too much time on getting your network monitoring started.

Have a suggestion on what we should write about next? Just reply to this post! You can also contribute an article and we would be happy help you with it.
