Pandora FMS Reviews

No translation for Russia

about Pandora FMS · · Helpful Not helpful 4 Helpful Report as spam

Pandora FMS is great look and feel, but as a person who has russian as a first language the lack of a cyrillic-written translation has made me to not be able to take full advantage of all the functions. My english is not the best and it takes me some time and help from Google translate to even write this review. I hope devs include a cyrillic translation soon. Meanwhile, I’ll have to use to other software because having to translate everything is wasting me too much time.

Great tool. Highly recommended both open and enterprise version

We are using Pandora FMS to monitor both cloud infrastructure and in house CDP. Since we moved to Pandora FMS we have saved in licensing and we have increased our SLA in almost 55%.

We started by the open source monitoring software version. After 2 years we decided to go for the Enterprise edition.

Hope it helps.

If I had to keep something of Pandora it would be that it has a specific preconfigured solution to monitor any of the SAP environments. It also has a series of default monitors that save time when making a system checklist, since they can send alerts with information of each of the events.

For the rest, it would be better to have a more specific filter for the data collection work where the desired information can be seen in an agile way.

Great software

I've been learning how to fully use Pandora FMS over the last few months that I've had the chance to, since at my last job this was the software we used to monitor 90% of everything done.
Even though the learning curve may be a little bit high, my boss seemed to be delighted with its features and how it functioned. Quite frankly, once the learning curve is overcome, it's actually as good as my boss said it was. I consider it to be a very complete solution for any large or medium scale company, where you can keep an eye on most processes your business has to perform. Just like most of the alternatives out there we can say it offers a very complete way to monitor almost everything, with the difference being that Pandora is MUCH more "tweakable" if we could say. Basically you can integrate most any external plugin, monitor any device, system, network: just fiddle around with it and you'll discover a world of possibilities.
Apart from this they do also have a good technical system, their tech assistance people are very friendly and willing to respond to your questions. If you have the time like I do right now, they also have a lot (and I mean a lot) of documentation pages on their product between their wiki page and PDF documents.
Check it out I think if you're willing, you'll love it.

We can not go throug life relying only on our intuition, it is convenient to ask about things before doing them, especially when it comes to making some important decisions I think that's what this software is for

IT is used for practically everything, so a failure in the service can be, directly, economic losses. Or imagine that problems affect customers. The web site suffers a drop in performance. Or that the system that supports billing stops working and the backup systems are outdated and do not respond to demand. Pandora is for this. For me at least it helps me in this bad experiences spread quickly and no company is interestd

Pandora stll has some flaws to patch up but it's on the right track

We are using Pandora FMS to monitor most of our company's devices and
we have found that it is very easy to use and intuitive. Pandora is
able to monitor, equally, devices, networks, servers, applications,
services and business processes in a flexible way and adaptable to your
environment. Knowing your tools does not take much time, so it is very
easy to start monitoring systems. Most of the problems we had can be
solved with the help of your agents or your wiki.
Thanks to them I have also been able to discover the Ehorus software
and see that together and integrated they work very well. Ehorus is a
remote computer management system based on the cloud, is one of the best
alternatives to Teamviewer for its simplicity. To start using it you
just have to install and run a software on your computer. That's right,
you can connect to your home computer from the office, and access the
desktop and all your files.

We had to try lots of them, but fnally we got the best outcome with Pandora FMS. It solved lots of weak spots we didn't know how to deal with. Both getting inventories in real time or a 10-yera-long history as well as usr experience, which is in my opinion the best feature of this software. And from that point on, we've kept using Pandora. But we also get its newest versions, so things keep getting better.
Over all monitoring sofwares, I think Pandora is the one that covers both simplicity and efficiency the two main components of a monitoring system.
Supervising network events is hard wrok, but it's also important in IT and tools like this one play an important role. If I could suggest something however based on my needs it'd be to come up with new ideas in a new feature that is closer to the device advanced security monitoring.
