Desktop Client

Executables

The desktop client is currently available only for 64-bit Windows, Mac and Linux platforms (Debian and Ubuntu).

You can find the installers in “Monitoring > Map > Desktop Client.” or here.

For performance considerations, we highly recommand to have less than 5, 10 users maximum connected at the same time manipulating views.

Installation

On user’s computer

The desktop client requires Java 8. You can download and install the latest version of Java from here.

Warning

Be sure to download the 64-bit version. Browsers are usually 32-bit and the Oracle website generally proposes 32-bit Java instead of the 64-bit version. If you already have Java installed, use the java -version command to check the architecture. If 64-bit does not appear, the version is 32-bit.

Warning

On a Mac platform, note that you must install Oracle JDK instead of the usually-required JRE.

To check the Java version run the command:

java -version

For Windows:

Execute centreon-map4-desktop-client*.exe:

Note

You do not need to be the administrator of your computer to perform the installation. All the files are will be installed in your personnal folders.

The default installation folder is C:UsersuserAppDataLocalCentreon-Map4.

You can install the software at this location without administrator rights but can change the destination to Program files if you have the sufficient rights.

Use the installer to install the software properly and integrate it into the Windows environment. The installer can also be used to uninstall it from the Windows dedicated configuration page.

Once installed, the Desktop Client is automatically kept up to date through an online update system. When it connects to a Centreon MAP server it automatically downloads and installs the latest version compatible with the server. Auto-update requires your computer to have internet access.
