openITCOCKPIT Community Edition

openITCOCKPIT enables you to manage the monitoring software Naemon simply and all by yourself. Needless to say, we also support Nagios and its forks as well. Especially cool is that you’re even able to conduct configurations via the web interface – thus you hardly need to use the command line.

openITCOCKPIT is open source and available as two different editions. On this page you find the Community Edition which you can download and use for free. The Community Edition already covers all the functions you need to get your monitoring jobs done. We’d appreciate if you used Ubuntu LTS 14.04 – as this is our base for coding.

In case you should require more functions which are available via Enterprise add-ons or support from us, the fee-based Enterprise Edition is what you’re looking for. The Enterprise Edition offers additional value with high-availability features, event correlation, and an ITSM-Stack Connector – the latter helps you to i.e. connect to a CMDB or ticket system.

On our Enterprise website you find information on our solutions, support and partner program. The latter is surely interesting for you, if you’re an expert for monitoring and looking to earn some money.

 Dashboard

The Dashboard provides a clear depiction of all the monitored systems' network components. The user can customize his dashboard individually with traffic light icons, gauges, graphs and maps. Single dashboards can be divided into multiple tabs (just like your browser) and shared with other users.

 Package Manager

The Package Manager makes it easy to extend your system with additional functionality. Due to the free development possibilities an entire environment of add-ons was formed. The Community Edition itself is hosted at GitHub.


 Multi-client

A directory service similar to LDAP allows you to set up and manage an unlimited number of clients in openITCOCKPIT in as many "containers" as you require (using ACL-protected areas). This allows hosters to manage their clients using different check procedures in accordance with the ordered service levels.

 Check commands

A CLI (Call Level Interface) is available in the web browser for the execution of commands. This standard API allows commands to be executed on a testing basis without an external program such as Putty or Terminal being required.

openITCOCKPIT also allows users to formulate command arguments in the form of phonetic names such as "Warning" - as opposed to the meaningless names typical for Nagios such as $ARG1$.

openITCOCKPIT also provides its own implementation of Nagios' "External commands". After choosing his command, the user is presented with a list of all available parameters and two examples.

 One-Click-Update

Updates are carried out via openITCOCKPIT's "Package Manager". It indicates when a new version is available and how the update has to be carried out: through an apt-get update or an apt-get dist-upgrade. A One-Click-Update of the bootstrap-based interface, however, is unfortunately not possible.
