Every month, Centreon extends its catalog of Plugin Packs and implements new connectors to allow you to connect your monitoring with ITOps tools. The result: more visibility and business observability capabilities. We also offer enhancements and fixes on existing Plugin Packs.

Here is our latest news on your best allies: the Plugin Packs!

To learn more, you can also read the related documentation, contact our sales team or post a message on The Watch.

New Plugin Packs available 

new-PluginPacks-Centreon

  • IP Fabric API: With this new package, use IP Fabric-generated snapshots to quickly add devices to your monitoring via the dedicated discovery rule. Centralize information on network route status and send an alert when a route does not display an expected status.
  • Amazon Backup Vault: Monitor the status of your AWS backup jobs within your vaults.
  • Hyper-V NSCP API: This new pack enables self-discovery of different elements within Hyper-V deployments, similar to what is currently available for VMWare. 
  • Windows WSMAN: As the deployment and use of NSClient++ in cloud deployments can be complex at times, we have developed a new way to monitor Windows systems: WINRM/WSMAN. Please send us some feedback!
