Glossary Open source monitoring

Definition

Open source broadly refers to software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open source IT infrastructure monitoring solutions offer the advantage of providing users with the flexibility to adapt their network or infrastructure monitoring to their exact needs. A great advantage of open source is the access to a wide and dynamic user community. The Centreon platform combines an open source core with commercial extensions.
