About the Community
Get started on the community.
On November 24th, the second edition of our annual meeting was held: the Centreon Summit 2022! It was the occasion to gather the French-speaking users of our community around Centreon and its use. In addition to the opening plenary session, which featured a few members of Centreon's board of directors and its CEO @jmathis providing information on our current news, new products, practical information and the roadmap, we had eight different tracks presented by various people from Centreon and members of the community. Finally, we rewarded the 15 most active people during the whole event and the 3 most active contributors on "The Watch", who are : @gespada, @coco163 and @sdouce. We would like to thank them all here 😉Relive here all the sessions and see you in 2023 for the next edition! 🚀 Centreon Summit 2022 was a 100% French speaking. So all the videos are in French.

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.
