I did very well to monitor my network infrastructure. Quickly see the status of all my printers, switch, computers, virtual machines to know if any system has fallen. I recommend this software for all systems administrator.

Comments: 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.

A really complete toolkit

Comments: 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 a fraction of the price. Plus they still offer their Open Source Community Edition, which is great to just explore the software or use it on medium sized infrastructures. Really, even if it¿s open source it¿s quite powerful.
I personally use the Enterprise Edition because of some additional features it has compared to the Community version, but I¿d still recommend any of both as solutions for your everyday monitoring. Pandora FMS helps me keep a more organised dashboard configuration for each of my customers, and makes me be more efficient when completing processes for them.

Highly recommendable monitoring solution

Comments: I just recently discovered Pandora FMS a few years back and am surprised how far its come along in terms of development and integrations. In its latest version we can see how its ease of use and general development have been improved upon largely. It¿s always been about pure flexibility and customisation, and it just keeps growing in that aspect. You¿re never going to have to see information about your infrastructure that you consider you don¿t need. As an IT consultant for medium and large businesses I always recommend it as a less costly alternative to Zabbix or Nagios, since it provides the same features and more at a much lesser price.
Apart from this, I¿m very glad to have had the chance to be in touch with the team behind this software and now that they are very willing to help make a company¿s work as easy as possible with their product. Apart from that, their general customer service is very efficient and has a very special way with customers which always proves to be helpful.

Great class example and even better find!

Comments: As a teacher at an University I use Pandora as part of a group of software examples when explaining networks and their monitoring. I'm really glad to be able to use this software, it's one of the rare few monitoring solutions that doesn't resort to being based on Nagios code and actually proposes a lot of new things to challenge students with. As a personal user, I agree that it's a great monitoring solution in general it includes a more than decent amount of features and integrations, even in its community edition.
In general, I would recommend it for large infrastructures because of the possibilities it offers.

Comments: 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
