Hi,

Sorry for not updating so often, I was quite busy and as you know, there is only 24 hours in a day 🙂

Go back to our main subject, Merethis has released Centreon 2.2.0

Let-s try to update our ‘old’ config :

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget http://download.centreon.com/index.php?id=153
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.2.0.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.9
cp  www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2.sql_to_2.2.0.sql www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2_to_2.2.0.sql
sudo ./install.sh -u /etc/centreon

Beware and copy the sql file to a new one as there is an error in a filename. If you don’t, you’ll see version 2.2RC2 and not 2.2.0. This will be fixed in version 2.2.1.

Hi,

In a previous; post we covered the installation of satellite in LAN. It is usefull if you have to monitor machines from distant sites. Generaly these sites are accessible with your local network or through a VPN but sometimes, the site is far away and is only accessible via internet connection. In most case, it’s located behind a firewall.
We will try to describe how we could set a secured connexion between distant satellite and our central monitoring server using SSH connection.

It will looks like something like that:

satelitte-ssh

Hi,

This post will cover the update process of Centreon Syslog module from version 1.2.1 to version 1.3.2
This update is composed of two parts. The syslog-server (which is updated from version 1.1 to 1.2) and syslog-frontend (which is updated from version 1.2.1 to 1.3.2)
Both are available from Centreon Forge (you have to be registered to get an access):

http://forge.centreon.com/projects/list_files/centreon-syslog

After getting the frontend and server files, transfer them on your server with WinSCP or any other tools you like.

Hi,

I’ve corrected the rsyslog installation process concerning the xconsole section.
In fact as we did not use X server, we did not need this part.

Here is the diff:

Edit 50-default.conf to correct the path

sudo nano /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf

At the end of the file, comment the xconsole section:

#daemon.*;mail.*;\
#       news.err;\
#       *.=debug;*.=info;\
#       *.=notice;*.=warn       |/dev/xconsole

Restart rsyslog:

sudo service rsyslog restart

The installation process is little sipmler with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as rsyslog is already integrated.
You’ll notice that the installation process is almost the same as the old one.

You will need Centreon-Syslog installation files. Please go to http://forge.centreon.com/ and register. You’ll be able to download sources after that:

http://forge.centreon.com/projects/list_files/centreon-syslog

Download the stable release (when I wrote, it was the 1.2.1 version). After getting the frontend and server files, transfer them on your server with WinSCP or any other tools you like.

WinSCP is available as setup or portable version http://winscp.net/eng/download.php Continue reading »

After installing our working monitoring solution, it could be useful to have also logs available inside our monitoring web interface.
For that purpose we will use these ressources:
