Pandora : The monitoring tool

5,0 2 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: The monitoring of our business needs a special vision to understand the values received by the monitoring. By adding Python script to manage data in entry, and PHP special views to give correct dashboard, it's a very powerful tool, that gives exact vision of the currently health of your system.

Pluspunten:

The Pandora offers a large number of function, growing every month to cover all monitoring. It's customizable through PHP pages, Python Script, and can become a very dedicated monitoring tool. But, as a standard tool, with the Community Version (unpaid), it is already very powerful if you take time to configure properly. With the forum and bi-monthly update, it's always reactive to improvement and correction.

Minpunten:

The default views are a bit too much for developers and IT Manager. Needs some development to make it a great tools.

The Mainframe and IoT monitoring system are utilized at large scale by our organization and we are seeing some really great results today.

The business processes and Tech development team are quite agile to our requirements. Though, there are few slip ups often observed while performing integration of softwares and servers across multi cloud environments. We have also requested for bringing in the customized version of the same at lower cost and price to have its maximum acceptability across all vendors and partners easily without any second thought.

Pandora FMS the perfect balance between price and quality.

5,0 11 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: In general, a good experience where I have been asked to monitor several servers with Windows and Linux operating systems, as well as network devices, where I have to make SNMP queries and report the health of the device, to generate trends and performance.

Pluspunten:

I like about Pandora FMS that infrastructure monitoring can be implemented in a simple way, it already has several integrated templates, so you just have to choose what you want to monitor the device and that's it, the configuration has already been applied.

Minpunten:

I would like you to improve the part where a template or configuration has already been applied, now modify it, in some cases you have to understand what the script is doing.

Nice software, lack of support (no longer supporting Ubuntu).

4,0 9 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Pandora help us with daily support.

Pluspunten:

Ability to program different custom queries.

Minpunten:

The support. Linux base application are more difficult to set up. Installation is never fluid like for Windows applications. Only supporting RedHat and CentOS, all our Linux product are based on Ubuntu. Why not supporting Ubuntu? This is game changer for our company, we are thinking about using another application if Ubuntu is no longer supported.

Thank you very much for your feedback! The official support refers to installations certified by us (CentOS/RHEL and now Rocky/Alma/RHEL based environment), but that doesn't mean that we don't have customers using unsupported systems, such as Solaris or NetBSD. We still distribute tarball packages to run on any Linux and the process to make it work from the source is documented. It is not possible to document the whole detailed installation process on Debian or Ubuntu because of the high fragmentation that exists in the Linux world, for its dependencies, differences between the boot scripts, or security systems of each distro. All our customers who request support for specific versions are attended. If this is your case, please contact us and we will try to help you, we never leave a customer without support even if they are using old or unsupported versions. Best!

Always evolving and great support !

5,0 3 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: The platform has a great feel to it and I love how they are always looking to improve the platform. I appreciate the evolution of features and how open the company is to listen to suggestions.

Pluspunten:

The ability to apply the same modules across multiple agents is extremely helpful. I like the flexibility of using these policies with various methods. I also like the ability to search for items within the platform as you build up the number of agents, it can be easy to get lost in the number of devices you are monitoring.

Minpunten:

For me, where menu items are located don't always make sense. I have to sometimes search for where something is especially if I don't use that feature a lot.

Pluspunten:

In comparison to other monitoring tools, Pandora FMS is among the best. Possible centralized monitoring of all infrastructure components (network, servers, apps, and databases). Pandora's features are all top-notch, too.

Minpunten:

If you're unfamiliar with Linux, the installation procedure might be a real headache.

Room to improve

3,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Pluspunten:

The thing I like the most it's the easy of deploy. It's like "bring your own monitoring service", you set it up and you use it. So it only depends on you and that it's great if you know what you are doing and you want to personalize everything.

Minpunten:

The worst thing about Pandora it's the lack of some basic functionalities like other products offer like correlation of metrics and the horrible UX. Something as basic as server monitoring needs to be configured when in other products you just install their agent and that's it. Some monitors in pandora needs that configuration.

Keeping it flexible and looking good.

5,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Recently, as a self taught programmer, I've been dabbing into the thought of setting up a personal server, and sooner or later starting to monitor my (ever-growing) infrastructure. During my research on the software side of things for this process, I've come across many monitoring solutions. The one that has most drawn my attention would probably be Pandora FMS. Firstly because they offer the chance to decide wether you'll need to pay for their Enterprise Edition, or if you'll stick with the open source Community Edition. That to me is a big factor since my infrastructure doesn't have the size and doesn't generate the need to pay in order to keep it monitored for now. In this sense, Pandora FMS has a very large edge over others.
Furthermore, the fact that the developers are from Spain, and although I know English, make any possible language barrier in general easier to surpass for me,considering I'm from Perú. I know this may sound as a silly thing to rescue on a product review, but being able to receive support in your own language is always something that I'm very grateful for.
Don't get me wrong, their support mainly replies and communicates in English, but in case you're a Spanish speaker, this might appeal to you as well.

Pandora FMS and how is necessary to be informed about your machines

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Really cool, makes me grow in my knowledge with a lot of topics all necessary for Local Area Network administration (and remote too).

Pluspunten:

The "Recon Server" makes a quick and clean work; after a week the "Prediction Server" takes advantage!

Minpunten:

For Debian/Ubuntu maybe a little tricky; the configuration interface maybe hard at glance because is for general purpose along all the program.

Pandora FMS

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

What I liked most about this software was that I can motorize all kinds of elements. What is better is that only with one tool you can do all kinds of things: as a network motorization, service-oriented motorization, application motorization and many other things, but for me the best are those three.

Minpunten:

At the moment nothing bad has come up because what I have been using has not given me problems so I am satisfied

Pandora FMS made my day

5,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I was looking for a monitoring solution to monitor more than 50 databases (different brands such as Mysql and Oracle), after a while I found a complete solution to add to the same dashboard every single application (CRM, Ticketing System, ...) of the infrastructure along with key performance indicator like RAM, CPU, Disk memory, bandwidth, etc It took me one day to handle the product and start adding other components to the monitoring dashboard. Quite flexible and easy to adapt. Cons: I miss some templates by default to start monitoring as soon as possible

Pluspunten:

This product seems really thorough. I would definitely want to implement if I had more money to do so.

Minpunten:

It is expensive. You can start off with a trial, but their NMS & Enterprise licenses are in the 1000’s.
