With the growing number of packs, and Centreon Plugins code evolution, we found it necessary to add a status information on each pack. This article gives details about this information that will soon appear in your list of packs.
- Are your servers and applications about to give out during crucial business or work hours? And for what reason?
- Is your ITOM team sufficiently alerted to anticipate or intervene promptly in system outages or failures?
- Is response time for IT problem-resolution respected or realistic?
- Are there IT assets or resources that can be pooled and shared or are they really inadequate?
- What is the state of your storage space, how is it used and how will it continue to be used as your company’s business evolves?
- Is your network designed to address your organization’s changing needs?
If you are asking yourself these questions, you are among the growing numbers of enterprise IT professionals who are searching for monitoring intelligence that can influence business growth.
If you are a CES user, you may already know of Centreon’s vast catalog of Plugin Packs and plugins available on GitHub. They help plug your monitoring system from Centreon into your enterprise IT operations almost instantly, covering and obtaining data about availability and performance of various IT assets and infrastructure.
We’ve just enhanced the Plugin Packs to extend and make your monitoring coverage easy using CES.
Users of Centreon Business Intelligence (BI) 2.2 will find 9 new report templates offering pertinent insights from your monitoring data, notably on:
- IT energy consumption
- Availability of IT service activity
Plus … ETL optimization and interface enhancements with handy tutorials.
It’s official. Centreon software will be developed and distributed based on the Apache License 2.0 from now on. Why the change, you may ask.
As our software solutions are increasingly used and tailored to all kinds of user environment and industries, our community of open source developers is also growing and maturing.
To keep our community of contributors thriving with diverse software expertise, we want every contributor’s work and source code development, including that of Centreon’s, to be truly respected and allowed to make money if desired.
So reducing ambiguity in source code contributions and being able to give proper attribution to them with respect to global standards and practices is important. This way, users of the Centreon software can benefit from evolving solutions that are robust and mature; and authors and maintainers of the software know what they are supporting and contributing to.
