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 🙂

  1. do you have any experiences with centreon and icinga after some months since this post? it’s driving mit nuts that i’m not capeable of finding a documentation with this combination 🙂

    i’d love to have a tutorial for this setup with idoutils.

    1. Hi Tobias

      I actually got it to work but not entirely through the centreon GUI. that was a while ago and some forum posts I’ve read since suggest that its possible to perform the setup without issues

      I’ve just changed jobs so its a bit of a bad time, but i’ll try re-setup my VM enviornment and note my steps is successful and give you a tutorial asap, assuming I catch on quickly on my new job 🙂

      Stay tuned… Subscribe/follow on twitter/like on facebook for updates 🙂
