A new advanced indicator: bolean KPI
You can now define some indicators as Boolean type. This new indicator has only two positions (OK and Critical) determined by the return value of KPI rule (True/False). Thus the boolean KPI is based on a logical rule including different positions of Centreon monitored services. Below an easy logical rule example:
It means “If Ping service of srv-centreon.com host is not OK or Ping service of srv-merethis.com is not OK, then the rule returns True”. While configuring, the user can define if the return value True/False of the rule, matches OK or Critical position of Boolean KPI. The user can overlap several rules on several levels.

Now, you can set a downtime on your business activity from monitoring control. Notifications won’t be sent when the downtime is planned.
Configuration tool tips
Centreon BAM now offers Tooltips on configuration, giving a better parameters understanding.
Few changes on behavior of calculation engine
Until now, the KPIs from the host that were in a DOWN / Unreachable state are considered critical. From now on and for a better cohesion, they are considered as *Unknown*. It is advised to check the impact of *Unknown* state on KPIs.
Centreon BAM 2.4 is now available MERETHIS platform as well as the full changelog.
