Centreon-Poller-Display is an open source and free module, available now in 1.6.0 version, designed to provide a light version of Centreon Web locally on your pollers. This interface allows users to view the monitored resources of the poller from the poller itself. This is interesting for users who are near to the poller server and away from the Central server or in case of a Central/network outage.
According to an IDC survey of 2014, 40% of SMB IT managers simultaneously manage physical, virtual and cloud-based operations. Small or not, they have to deal with a diversity of IT assets, and integrating good monitoring for each of them takes some knowledge and precious time.
Business-conscious IT managers in thriving SMBs may like the greater flexibility and unchallenged affordability of open source. But there’s a non-negligible trade-off to figuring out the integration of open source monitoring in terms of time, staff and budget resources, especially if they have to resort to DIY tactics. Thought, being operational is more critical to their business than for large companies.
