Pros

The software is highly secure, reliable and customizable and has a user-friendly UI. Additionally, the price point is competitive with other system monitoring and management solutions.
Pandora FMS is a comprehensive and powerful monitoring solution that is designed to help organizations monitor and manage their IT infrastructure.
The quality and helpfulness of technical assistance is excellent. I love everything about the Pandora FMS workstation, especially the user interface.

Pros

Overall experience has been good, it does what it says and it has been very useful for monitoring our systems.
The ease of setup was wonderful and it served almost all our needs out of the box.
I love that it includes native support for a lot of brands and products like Servers, Routers, Firewalls, Switches, Workstations, Software, etc. The ease of use of PRTG is incredible.

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.

Cons

Having to license and manage a windows server just for PRTG is a bummer.
I run a single server with close to 10,000 sensors, which is considered the maximum for a single server and I see performance problems from time to time because I run it at red line.
Too hard to read sometimes about notification.

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

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.

A feature rich alternative to monitoring solutions

Reviewed 5 years ago

The general feeling that Pandora FMS transmits is of robustness, at no time do you have the feeling that something is missing or that some module can do something else. It is a highly flexible and multiplatform solution that offers the possibility of monitoring a wide type of systems. If for any reason the element you need to monitor does not have a predefined module or plugin in Pandora you can always...

Pros

User Experience: The interface is clean and friendly, also the separation between regular users and administrators is well defined without giving the sensation of missing tools or features. On the contrary, there is always some additional tool.

Cons

The definition of local Software Agents in the OpenSource version can become tedious during the initial deployment in multiple Agents. However, the Enterprise version covers this detail, allowing centralized administration and deployment from the web console.

PandoraFMS in a proactive environment

Reviewed 5 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.

Pandora FMS the perfect balance between price and quality.

Reviewed 2 years 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.

I like that the software can be used to watch both Windows and Linux servers. I also like that it can be installed in different ways. The customer service is great because they respond quickly, and the dashboard view makes it easy to monitor.

Cons

It might be hard to understand tool at first. but it gets easier once you put in the work and time to look at all the benefits. Maybe an involved audience would help people feel more at ease faster. Not much else to worry about once you learn how to use software.

A really complete toolkit

Reviewed 8 years ago

As a self employed sysadmin, I manage infrastructures for third parties on a daily basis. After trying to monitor efficiently with other solutions, I have come to the conclusion that in terms of price and practicality, Pandora FMS just has very little competition. Basically they're offering a better service and more customisation options than any other monitoring solution out there, for basically...

Monitorización a todos los niveles

Reviewed 2 years ago

El nivel de monitorización de eventos criticos se detectan con mucha mas rapidez sin tantos problemas de comunicaciones o falsos positivos.

Pros

Entre las funciones que mas nos aportan valor, ha sido la monitorización de SAP, con el plugin en la version Enterprise, abarca muchos puntos que no teniamos monitorizados anteriormente o que habia que desarrollar scripts propios para poder hacerlo. Ademas ofrece una serie de plugins de otros productos como Hana, Oracle, MSSQL, y multiples funcionalidades que seguramente no se explotan al 100% de lo que se ofrece

Cons

Los reportes son poco amigables o muy limitados para poder customizar un reporte a medida. El dashboard de eventos es un poco limitado a la cantidad de eventos y se pierde visibilidad

Keeping it flexible and looking good.

Reviewed 8 years ago

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...

Be in control of your servers uptime

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Basically just how easy is to register a free trial and monitor our servers and and our internal shop system. Since we operate in many countries and we want to provide a 100% reliability for our clients, monitoring servers and their usage, errors etc. is really important, having all the data and statistics at one place is a must have, which Pandora FMS provides very well. Create custom reports or configure as many alerts as you want so you know your bussines is working!

Cons

You can get easilly lost in the administration since there are so many things in menu and options it can be tricky sometimes

Vendor response
