Centreon Collect​

24.04.2​

Release date: June 17, 2024

Enhancements

  • [Engine] The whitelist works with all the commands executed by Engine.
  • [Engine] Engine can now handle extra configuration files to complement/overload the centengine.cfg file. This enhancement allows you to keep a custom configuration unchanged when exporting the configuration.

  • [Broker] Fixed an issue where grpc layers crashed if a channel was deleted by a grpc thread.
