Install the Centreon BAM extension

Centreon BAM is a Centreon extension that requires a valid license key. To purchase one, contact Centreon.


See the software requirements.

Install BAM on the central server. The central server and Centreon BAM must be installed in the same major versions (i.e. both in 24.04.x). If you want to be able to view the Business activities monitored by a remote server, install BAM on the remote server too. When BAM is installed on a remote server, the Business activities will only include the resources monitored by the remote server.
