Simple architecture

Description

The simple architecture is to have all oversight entities within the same server, ie:

  • Centreon web interface
  • Databases (MySQL + RRD)
  • Monitoring Engine
  • Broker

This architecture is the simplest a user may encounter.

Components

Many components are used to build this architecture:

  • Apache web server for Centreon web interface
  • MariaDB databases to store Centreon configuration parameters as well as monitoring and performance data
  • A monitoring engine to collect data
  • Collected data are sent to Centreon Broker SQL using cbmod by monitoring engine
  • Centreon Broker SQL allows to store information into MariaDB databases and forward them to Centreon Broker RRD
  • Centreon Broker RRD generates and updates RRD files with data in order to display performance graphs
