Centreon features

From network to applications and from legacy to state-of-the-art, the breadth and width of Centreon monitoring scope has got you covered. Centreon monitors the 470+ type of components that make modern IT and covers all domains: Cloud, Virtualization, Microservices, Databases, Middleware, Systems, Storage, Security, Network, Hardware, IoT, ITOM services.

A diversity of data collection capabilities

Centreon agentless SNMP active monitoring makes implementation a breeze, but we know the world is diverse: you may use agents if required, we connect to cloud services or to any modern equipment through APIs, we catch SNMP Traps, execute scripts remotely and support a variety of other data collection methods when needed.

Fully compatible Nagios® alternative

Some have invested time and effort in the past to develop Nagios® checks to monitor their bespoke infrastructure and applications. These are fully compatible, providing a seamless upgrade path to the much robust and feature-rich Centreon platform.

Enterprise Plugin-Packs: get started in minutes

Monitoring should be that easy: we packaged everything you need for 1-click setup into a set of 470+ Enterprise Plugin Packs.

AI-powered Anomaly Detection

Machine-Learning algorithms can detect anomalies that would otherwise go unnoticed.

The Anomaly Detection feature leverages Artificial Intelligence to automatically learn patterns from monitored indicators, and to alert when indicators experience abnormal behaviors, outside their typical pattern. The platform implements a unique Cloud-Augmented architecture that offloads to the Cloud anomaly-detection machine learning algorithms, avoiding computing-intensive operations on the on-premise monitoring servers.
