Check_MK is a complex addon for Nagios/Icinga and consists of three subprojects. The check and inventory system Check_MK is a general purpose Nagios plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a new approach for collecting data and obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp. It features a significant reduction of CPU use on the Nagios host and automatic inventory of items to be checked, and is especially useful with larger Nagios installations. "MK Livestatus" gives immediate and fast access to live and historic Nagios status data. It's a supported backend for many addons including NagVis, NagiosBP, and Thruk. "Check_MK Multisite" is a feature complete replacement for the Nagios GUI, and uses MK Livestatus as a backend. It is very fast, and supports efficient distributed monitoring.
Opsview Core is a network monitoring software application. It solves the challenges of monitoring modern IT and network systems.

RealOpInsight is an advanced dashboard management toolkit for Nagios, Zabbix, Zenoss, Icinga, and other common open source monitoring systems including GroundWork, Centreon, Shinken, and op5 Monitor. It provides effective features for monitoring in demanding operations environments such as network operations centers and large data centers.
SysopView shows information in a visually attractive way, like computers in movies do. The idea is that it can show information relevant to system administrators non-comprehensible for non-technical personnel, while still looking attractive even if you don't know what is shown. The current version can show nagios status data, webcam streams (mjpeg, jpeg, and video4Linux), and VNC, has a built-in terminal emulator in which regular text applications can be run, can sniff the network (including remotely) and dissect streams and show pictures which are sniffed, can show external bitmaps (from, for example, mrtg and rrdtool), and can scroll text (currently showing output of rssfeeds).
