# Centreon Engine #

Centreon Engine is a fast and powerful open-source monitoring scheduler.
It is a low-level component of the [Centreon software suite](https://www.centreon.com).

Centreon Engine is released under the General Public License version 2
and is endorsed by the [Centreon company](https://www.centreon.com).

This project was started as a fork of Nagios, the well known open-source
monitoring application. While keeping its configuration file format and
its stability we improved it in several ways :

  - reduced startup time
  - faster standard check execution engine
  - new light check execution system (connectors)
  - on-the-fly configuration reload
  - less obscure configuration options
  - frequent bugfix releases

Just give it a try !

## Documentation ##

The full Centreon Engine documentation is available online
[here](http://documentation.centreon.com/docs/centreon-engine/en/). It
is generated from [reStructuredText](http://docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html) files located in the *./doc/* directory of
Centreon Engine sources.

The documentation extensively covers all aspects of Centreon Engine such
as installation, compilation, configuration, use and more. It is the
reference guide of the software. This *README* is only provided as a
quick introduction.

## Installing from binaries ##

**Warning**: Centreon Engine is a low-level component of the Centreon
software suite. If this is your first installation you would probably
want to [install it entirely](https://documentation.centreon.com/docs/centreon/en/2.6.x/installation/index.html).

Centreon ([the company behind the Centreon software suite](http://www.centreon.com))
provides binary packages for RedHat / CentOS. They are available either
as part of the [Centreon Entreprise Server distribution](https://www.centreon.com/en/products/centreon-enterprise-server/)
or as individual packages on [our RPM repository](https://documentation.centreon.com/docs/centreon/en/2.6.x/installation/from_packages.html).

Once the repository installed a simple command will be needed to install
Centreon Engine.

    $# yum install centreon-engine

## Fetching sources ##

The reference repository is hosted at [GitHub](https://github.com/centreon/centreon-engine).
Beware that the repository hosts in-developement sources and that it
might not work at all.

Stable releases are available as gziped tarballs on [Centreon's download site](https://download.centreon.com).

## Compilation (quickstart) ##

**Warning**: Centreon Engine is a low-level component of the Centreon
software suite. If this is your first installation you would probably
want to [install it entirely](https://documentation.centreon.com/docs/centreon/en/2.6.x/installation/index.html).

This paragraph is only a quickstart guide for the compilation of
Centreon Engine. For a more in-depth guide with build options you should
refer to the [online documentation](https://documentation.centreon.com/docs/centreon-engine/en/latest/installation/index.html#using-sources).

Centreon Engine needs Centreon Clib to be build. You should
[install it first](https://github.com/centreon/centreon-clib).

Once the sources of Centreon Engine extracted go to the *./build/*
directory and launch the CMake command. This will look for required
dependencies and print a summary of the compilation parameters if
everything went fine.

    $> cd centreon-engine/build
    $> cmake .
    ...

Now launch the compilation using the *make* command and then install the
software by running *make install* as priviledged user.

    $> make -j 4
    ...
    $# make install

You're done !
