We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Centreon Primary Use Case

CEO at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

We use Centreon primarily for network monitoring. We monitor our customers' networks, including the internet connection and the switches, for temperature and general hardware status. For some of our larger customers, we use it to monitor servers as well, using the simple network management protocol (SNMP).

We use it for monitoring infrastructure and custom applications. We customize the monitoring and dashboards. We have a NOC here, where we monitor our clients' environments 24/7. It is integrated with our ticketing system and SMS and email for communication. We also have a Knowledge Base system integrated with Centreon.

We use it on-premises for ourselves and we provide SaaS with it for our customers. We have more than 20 installations of Centreon.

We have multiple instances with Centreon: a central, remote, MBI, report server, and two pollers. We also have Centreon MAP. All the pollers are pulling all the endpoints, sending information to the central and remote instances. If we need to produce some reports to connect, then we connect directly to the report server. If we need to produce MAPs, then we connect to the MAP server.

We monitor bandwidths of all the links inside the data center as well as outside Internet links and MPLS links to have the connectivity, status, and bandwidth consumption. We have defined the threshold on these links to understand if they are being overused or not. This is the main feature.

We use the same for network devices to see basic information, like a device's uptime to know if it is up or down. It is also the same for all the ports and environment probes on the hardware.

For the server, we configure specific probes to check some specific services. For example, the server provides a service through a Docker container, then we can configure a specific query to check the Docker container stages. Or, if we need to have the temperature of the air conditioning system, then we configure a specific query to ask for it. So, there is basic information coming from the network devices related to hardware. There is also some specific monitoring about services that we are using in terms of the business or infrastructure on specific devices.

We have 500 hosts and 4,000 services.

We basically use the solution to host monitoring for our customers. We are trying to upsell them to use some of the more advanced features of Centreon, however, unfortunately, we haven't succeeded in doing so yet.

We use it primarily for monitoring our devices. We also use it for discovery. For example, if a server is down, the first step to take is just go to Centreon and have a look.

I installed this solution on my company's local server. It is on the LAN network. There is a plugin for Centreon for connecting and providing visibility to the host.
