Pandora FMS

Pandora FMS

Pandora FMS is a monitoring Open Source software. It watches your systems and applications, and allows you to know the status of any element of those systems. Pandora can detect if a network interface is down, a defacement on your website, a memory leak in one of your server app, or even the movement of shares of the NASDAQ stockmarket.

Pandora FMS has four main components: Pandora FMS Servers (Pandora Data Server, Pandora Network Server, Pandora SNMP Console), Pandora FMS Agents, and Pandora FMS Web Management System (Web Console) and Pandora Database.

Pandora can also monitor any kind of TCP/IP service without installing agents, and monitor network systems such as load balancers, routers, switches, operating systems, applications, or simply printers. Pandora also supports SNMP for collecting data and for receiving traps.

Pandora agents are based on native languages in every platform: scripts that can be written in any language. It's possible to reproduce any agent in any programming language and the existing ones can be extended without difficulty in order to cover aspects not taken into account up to the moment.
