Mobile App for Checkmk
Create an iOS and Android app for Checkmk, which is focused on monitoring (not setup). It should address 2 common use cases:
* Receive notifications and allow drill down and instant actions (like acknowledge, set downtime, ...)
* See site overview (like Overview snapin) and allow drill down from there

App would be state of the art.... (Just look a bit to prtg ;-))
I absolutely love easyNag!
But a first party solution with all the things in easyNag, but also with notifications would be great!
We also used aNag for Android until the Check_MK Microcore was released. It was a great time and so much better than a browser...
Having a widget on your home screen with "states" etc would be amazing.
We currently still use the Nagios core so we can continue to use aNag because there is no other option that works as well as aNag. Lot of the features that aNag has like, quite times schedules, ack alerts, set downtimes, volume/vibrate override for critical alerts, etc.
Tracking by mobile application is very convenient, I find it very necessary
Maybe a responsive design would be enough.
For buy CheckMK we need this
While a responsive website would suit most it's the notifications I would be after. Ultimately I am looking at unattended monitoring and only using the system to help with fault-finding and analysis.
For me, you can never get an app to replace the main system and I think it is the wrong way to look at it. So for me, it would be:
- 2 factor
- configurable notifications
- Active alarms list
- Alarms acknowledgement
I certainly wouldn't want to do more than this on a mobile app as we already have that in the main application
using easyNag too and missing the notification option only

Thank you all for your comments. If I summarize them, it looks like you are looking for a Checkmk app, which offers:
* Being the target for notifications
* Show an overview like the overview widget in the sidebar
* Have the ability to drill down to the list of problem hosts or services and drill further into each of the problem hosts/services
I am a bid unclear, which actions are required at this point. Acknowledgements, Schedule downtimes, Comments? So basically what actions do you want to do on a mobile device
An overview of the servers. It would be nice if a prefabricated view could be used. Notifications for selected hosts, so that one has granularly configured the different notification paths.
To acknowledge problems and set maintenance.
I would love the following features:
- General Overview
-- Filterable Views for Hosts and Services (only my down/warn/crit Host/Services)
-- Performance Data
- Mobile notifications
-- enable notifications (for the app)
-- disable notifications (for the app)
-- configure schedules on when to be notified (e.g. only crit during night time or not at all during night times)
-- customizable notification methods (like "ring until the phone breaks" or just a simple pling)
- Set and remove Acknowledgements
- Set and remove Downtimes
- Two-Factor Authentication
Some other interesting options would be (next step)
- Some actions and global Admin options for Administrators
- a text chat based on e.g. host- or contact-groups
- on-call group management
