  1. Centreon BAM in Centreon Broker

Since January 2015, we have integrated a module of Centreon BAM 3.0 into the real-time engine of Centreon Broker 2.8, making it:

  • More intuitive. A service activity is only computed when the status of the related KPI changes.
  • More resource efficient. By abandoning CRON that consumed heavy resources because of its insistence in computing all service activities every single minute, we are able to free up resources for more service activities to the monitoring system.
  • More accurate in delivering relevant insights with BI’s new reporting templates. All events are now stored in a database to clearly trace the location and component linked to an incident for troubleshooting.
  • More faithful to the chronology of incidents. Updates are made in real time by the second, allowing the precise identification of an incident’s root cause.

Centreon Broker will also be the first to benefit from the gradual integration of InfluxDB with Centreon solutions, to deliver:

  • Better scalability
  • Significant reduction of storage space
  • Easy data recovery
  • Advanced computation of patterns and trends
