Release date: March 19, 2024

Centreon Broker​

Bug fixes

Compatibility

Centreon Broker​

New features
  • An experimental output type has been added to send internal performance data to OpenTelemetry receivers. This cannot be used from the WUI at the moment.
  • An experimental output type has been added to send the monitored metrics to VictoriaMetrics time-series databases. This cannot be used from the WUI at the moment.
Enhancements

  • The RRD files used to store status history are now rebuilt at the same time as metric files.
