With the announced end of support for CentOS 7 (planned for June 30th, 2024), we have seen a growing number of compatibility issues with this operating system. This has forced Centreon to implement workarounds or to rely on non-official component distribution. Centreon wants to provide the best support, experience and security. To ensure everyone anticipates the end of CentOS 7, and that we focus our efforts on modern operating systems, we will take a step forward in stopping CentOS 7 support in the 2023 Spring release (planned around April 2023). This will also end support for equivalent distributions: Redhat 7 and Oracle Linux 7.Prior versions that do currently support CentOS 7 will remain fully supported through their entire lifetime (please check details in the lifecycle policy) and until the CentOS 7 end of support. Feel free to comment/ask questions through this post. Frequently Asked Questions What alternative Operating Systems to CentOS 7 does Centreon support?The current versi

OW2con’22 Keynote - Combining the spirit of open source with business realities: a never-ending journeyKeynote
Starting a new open source project is the easy part. Building a skilled community to strengthen the project while making it a professionally adopted, industry-grade open source software is much more challenging. It requires a sustainable business model that balances the spirit of open source with economic realities. And what works in the early years of a project doesn't necessarily work forever: finding the right balance is a never-ending journey.Let's try and understand what works, what doesn't.OW2con’22 Keynote from @jmathis, CEO and Co-Founder at Centreon.

Bonjour !Je suis étudiant au sein d’une société de service informatique et nous recherchons une solution de supervision adaptée pour permettre de superviser environ 100 serveurs avec des remontés matériel standards telles que l’espace disque libre, l’état du CPU, le nombre de barrette de mémoire disponible, l’état du ping ainsi que la remonté de l’état du RAID. Dans notre cahier des charges, nous devons aussi permettre de faire la supervision avec le protocole IMAP car nous avons des réplications locales (nos locaux) de Nas client qui se synchronise avec des Nas QNAP distant (leur site) qui peuvent seulement nous faire remonter un état des réplications par e-mail avec le protocole IMAP (l’application utilisée est HBS 3 Hybrid Backup Sync). Nous souhaiterons notamment pouvoir superviser l’ensemble des sauvegardes configurées sur Shadow Protect et Veeam backup qui sont sur plusieurs Windows serveur 2016.
