I have a few questions to ask about Check_Mk, and I hope some experts will help me to understand it or to shed some light on these parts of CheckMk.
Does CheckMk provides Acknowledgement and Comment feature? I have gone through the WATO but didn’t find these options anywhere there. I could see the Comment page when clicking on an event, but there is no button to add one or I may have look at a wrong place.
When we add a host, and after the service discovery process it shows a lot of monitor services in which I only require a few (about 5 out of 30+). I have set the required 5 ones to monitored status, and activated the changes to make it visible on the panel. However, does the CheckMK check all those 30+ services at a regular interval or only the ones selected? It may cause performance issues if all those undecided services status fetch by the system.
Is there any way to disable the periodic service discovery for all the hosts we would add? We only have to discover the services ones when we add the host, and no need to run the discovery process periodically.
Please advise on the above if possible.
