The result: increased visibility and business observability capabilities. We also offer enhancements and fixes on existing connectors.

5 New monitoring connectors

There are five new monitoring packs to discover this month.

  1. Azure Policies States: Use this connector to monitor the compliance status of Azure policies.
  2. Control-M Rest API: Use this new pack to monitor jobs in the Control-M job scheduler using the REST API.
  3. Riello UPS SNMP: Use this pack to monitor the status of the battery, alarms, power source metrics and output lines for this UPS.
  4. Oracle Universal Connection Pool: This Java-based tool allows reusing connections by caching connection objects to the database. This Plugin Pack monitors the usage of each connection pool and helps you deploy monitoring through an Auto-Discovery rule. As the name of the pack indicates, the objects are monitored using a JMX agent.
  5. Western Digital NAS: Use this connector to discover volumes and monitor their use and the status of the equipment.



    The following connectors were enhanced this month:

    • Azure Discover: This connector has been enriched to discover all Azure instance types supported by Centreon and more Azure instance types can now be managed.
    • CheckPoint firewall: This connector monitors CheckPoint gateways. A new disk service template has been added.
    • Cisco WLC: This connector discovers network interfaces and monitors bandwidth usage. A new access points discovery rule has been added.
    • UPS Standard: Thresholds for alarm services on UPS monitoring were added.
    • VMware ESX: New attributes were added to the host discovery provider (ip_management and ip_vmotion) and some attribute types were corrected.
    • Alcatel Omniswitch: This connector discovers network interfaces and monitors switch status and usage. The interface control service model was refreshed.
    • Azure SQL Database: The Centreon Azure SQL Database Plugin Pack includes a host discovery provider called Microsoft Azure SQL Databases. It discovers all instances attached to a given Microsoft Azure subscription. Extra options were added to the template to customize the status check associated with the database. The template defines the health of the database.
    • Dell PowerStore Rest API: This connector controls your Dell PowerStore equipment. Memory control was added.
