Short description

This package is an Alignak Backend.

It is used to:

* manage monitoring configuration (hosts, services, contacts, timeperiods...)

end user (WebUI, alignak-backend-cli, python/php client, curl command line,...) can get, add, edit monitoring configurations elements
inner templating system to easily create new hosts, services, users, ...
Alignak gets this configuration when its arbiter module starts

* manage retention

Alignak saves and loads retention information for checks/hosts/services from the backend

* manage the monitoring live state

Alignak add/update states for hosts and services
end user (webui, command line...) can get these information

* manage the metrics from the checks performance data

Release strategy

Alignak backend and its *satellites* (backend client, and backend import tools) must all have the
same features level. As of it, take care to install the same minor version on your system to
ensure compatibility between all the packages. Use 0.4.x version of Backend import and Backend
client with a 0.4.x version of the Backend.
