Data collection components’ source code is now centralized in https://github.com/centreon/centreon-collect/.

How it was before?

For major releases until 21.04, source code has been (and is still) hosted in 4 distinct repos:

What was wrong with that?

Building the binaries manually from the source was quite tedious since the four repositories had to be cloned, and then compiled in the right order: clib needed to be compiled and installed first.

In our continuous delivery chain, this resulted in the necessity to rebuild new containers with every new version of centreon-clib.

How it is now?

Starting with major release 21.10, all the source code is centralized in https://github.com/centreon/centreon-collect/, each former repository being stored in a separate directory.

What does it change for you?

  • Issues: for major releases until 21.04, it changes nothing. Issues can be filed in the former repositories, but issues for version >=21.10 must be filed in centreon-collect.
  • Compilation from the sources: this is the best part! To compile and the last stable version of the 21.10 version of our Collect components, you just need to run these commands:
git clone https://github.com/centreon/centreon-collect -b 21.10.x
cd centreon-collect
./cmake.sh -DWITH_TESTING=0 --release
cd build
make install

Bonus: it should even work on some non-x86 architectures such as ARM (we regularly check that it works on RaspberryPi devices).
