Pros

Easy to use, the free version of the software provides a good number of sensors to work with and easy to integrate.
The customer service is fantastic. It's very configurable and once you learn the basic setup it's easy to set up new systems and services.
I love the licensing model for PRTG. I can just buy a bulk set of sensors and then I can "spend" those sensors in any way that I like.

Pros

The quality and helpfulness of technical assistance is excellent. I love everything about the Pandora FMS workstation, especially the user interface.
It was very intuitive and easy to use. We loved how it saved up-to 20mins of time doing repetitive tasks each day/week.
What I liked most about this software was its ease of use and implementation.

Cons

They sporadically experienced strange bandwidth problems and the cable provider didn't solve the problem within months.
After paying them for support all this time I am done with this company, they are a scam.
Windows based, and sometimes it's awkward to manage lots of linux machines with it - especially when the monitoring requires scripts to run on the remote machines.

Cons

You can get easilly lost in the administration since there are so many things in menu and options it can be tricky sometimes.
Integration has been a challenge we've bad to overcome.
Linux base application are more difficult to set up.

Pandora FMS the perfect balance between price and quality.

Reviewed a year ago

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Allows me to see potential future issues with the network.

Pros

Pandora FMS is a flexible and highly scalable monitoring system ready for big environments. It doesn't matter what network you are using.

Cons

The software tends to overwork the system and overload the core. In doing so it slows the network and operating systems of the computers being monitored.

Pandora FMS has helped us manager the increased network workload ( because of the pandemic ) amazingly .

Pros

The color scheme of the Tactical View makes it easy to differentiate between the different metrics you follow . Plus ,you can customize the reports you get to show only what you need them to . The automated device discovery often saves me a lot of time .

Cons

While thorough , the network mapping process takes longer than ideal. The initial setup is complicated and the program overall is not the most intuitive to use .

Reviewed a year ago

It allows us to monitor the company's infrastructure completely and permanently, enabling us to react immediately to any contingency and avoid technological failures in the systems.

Pros

It notifies us if something fails or if data from a dangerous or questionable source is obtained. The policy feature, which allows us to centralize everything and continuously monitor the data of VMware virtual machines, is very important to us because it improves performance and response time in the event of an outage.

Cons

It has worked very well and there is nothing negative to report so far.

Well done Artica!

Reviewed a year ago

Pandora is like a blank sheet of paper, which has allowed us to exploit it in various fields and we have developed custom plugins. It has helped us a lot to monitor databases and networking. We are starting tests with the modules to monitor user experience. It is an excellent tool and we are looking forward to Pandora for a long time! Well done Artica!

Pros

What I liked the most about Pandora is the ease of deployment of the agents, the extensive documentation and the integration of alerts with various platforms such as Telegram, Discord, Google Chat.

Cons

one of the lowest points that I have noticed is in the area of reporting, graph creation, but as it has integration with Grafana then there have been no major complications.

PandoraFMS in a proactive environment

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've spent a lot of time working with and discussing our needs for monitoring, functionality and reporting with support and development, we've always been able to add to the software functionality to meet our needs whilst keeping the functionality useful to all. Support and Development have been very keen to discuss needs.

Pros

As our business grew, we took on a number of products to allow us to monitor, report and alert on the devices we supply and manage. over time we have outgrown each. when we looked at PandoraFMS we were impressed that we could deploy many servers in layers with a common central dashboard, making management easy. We also recognised that 'out of the box' monitoring didn't always meet our needs, in a lot of cases systems monitor many things that are irrelevant to us which ties up resource and storage to collect and keep this data that never gets looked at. PandoraFMS allows us to select the items we want to monitor and keep the data focused to our needs.

Cons

Deployment was very manual, however once we'd gone through setting this up for our needs using plugin server, it allows us to keep adding more and more monitored devices, each the same as the last.

Cloud-based powerful monitoring tool.

Reviewed 9 months ago

For a long time, we were looking for a monitoring solution that could ensure the resiliency of our web applications and finally, with the help of the Pandora FMS team, we found the right tool. Pandora FMS is an out-of-the-box monitoring solution that allows you to monitor your applications and systems and has a very intuitive interface that allows you to build your dashboards in no time. We can not wait to see what the future holds for Pandora FMS.

Pros

Pandora FMS offers flexible, reliable, and customizable IT infrastructure monitoring, faster resolution of issues, and better overall performance based on monitoring from different sources and vendors.

Cons

I have been looking for a better monitoring solution than what we were using before and I came across this. It is a complete monitoring solution that is easy to learn, use and set up. We can monitor and track everything that matters to us and we can even do it from anywhere.

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Vendor response

Thank you very much Jorge for your review. Best regards, Pandora FMS team
