The digital revolution has resulted in Business management having massively computerized tools to work with, leading to a large number of questions on a daily basis. How can these users get the answers to questions on subjects as essential as CRM availability or the availability of their emails? How can your monitoring indicators be used to give an application-oriented view? The answers from Etienne Gautier.
The release of Centreon 3.4, the new version of our open source solution, is accompanied by a version upgrade of all Centreon products. The new versions of Centreon EPP, Centreon MAP, Centreon BAM and Centreon MBI, as well as the Centreon EMS solution are therefore compatible with Centreon 3.4.
Important: for any upgrade, please contact our Centreon TechSupport first to update your repo of Centreon and thereafter your products or Centreon EMS solution.

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.
Possible downtime on Business Activity
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.

This version brings a few bug fixes (c.f changelog). Note that a few of you ended up with a version which displays an incorrect version of your Centreon (RC2) although it was supposed to be 2.2.0 stable, this is fixed in Centreon 2.2.1. Also, we have received reports from some contributors who noticed important performance issues due to the graph engine Centstorage and this is fixed in 2.2.1 as well. Make sure to restart Centstorage after the upgrade.
This is therefore an important bugfix version which we advise you to upgrade into.
This version is available in download from the Web site Centreon.
