Hi Guys,

I would like to have your opinion about Centreon. I plan to install the 23.10 version (Community edition) but I am undecided between Alma 8 or 9.

In the long term, which of these is the best to use (more popular, stable, fewer bugs, available packages, recommended by Centreon)?

Your answer will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hi @ponchoh 

Thank you for your answer. I’ve quickly read the documents.

As seen, Almalinux 8 was chosen for the OVA version. Is there any reason?

Does it mean that Almalinux 8 is more recommended than 9 ? I mean for the long term… ^_^

I suggest AL 9.


AL 8 is now a bit old (2019) and the so are the software who are included.

I think it’s wiser to start on AL 9, longer support life, newer software.
