Centreon Broker 20.04

Enhancements

Removal of Qt

Broker does not need Qt anymore.

JSon

Switch from Xml config to Json. We used json11 toolkit, and remove all ref for yajl from sources.

Network

Switch from QtNetwork to Asio. We start an effort to avoir copy in network buffers.

Optimization

Migration of the code to C++11.

Better test Coverage

We now have 370+ tests (+280%). It allow us to have a better code coverage of the code base.

Stream connector

The stream connector is now asynchronous. If it has to execute a script that is too slow, it won’t slow down Broker. Broker will just return messages complaining about the slowness of the script.

Another change, now when a stream connector crashes, Broker does not terminate but just returns an error message containing the Lua interpreter error.
