Nugget Post : Changing the monitoring backend for Centreon

The makers of Centreon quite clearly state that their frontend is compatible with a number of backends, including for example their own centreon-engine, nagios and icinga. At the time of writing, most documentation tackles installing a combination of Centreon+Nagios. However, I could not find any documentation on how to install a combination of say, Centreon+Icinga. Then, I stumbled across this setting under

Administration > Option> Nagios > Default Engine


The options currently available are:

– Icinga

– Nagios

– Shinken

Expect another post once I take this out for a test 🙂
