We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
We could literally swap out a piece of hardware, slide one back into the chassis, and immediately - about three reboots later - it was identical. We didn't have to worry about configuring it, we didn't have to spend any time getting anything into place. It came back and it healed the environment almost immediately.Comprehensive dashboard, ease of use are key features.

The most valuable features are auto-discovery and automatic detection of the network topology and network monitoring.What I value most about Pandora FMS is the simplicity of working with it.We are able to control our business with this all-in-one monitoring tool.It allows me to quickly see the status of all of my printers, switches, computers, and virtual machines to determine if any system has fallen.Pandora FMS provides us with a general report (graphical) about all of the connected devices, which helps with planning new stations and tracking them.The solution is so lightweight that with only 4GB of ram, it allows keeping track of up to two hundred agents from a single console.Thanks to its flexibility, I have been able to adapt the tool to our servers and find out quickly how their console works.The official forum is active enough to answer most of the high-end technical questions that you may have.

Cons
Sometimes the interface can be a little confusing, sometimes the error messages can be very cryptic, as far as what's actually going on.The main problem that we run into, as far as stability goes, is when something loses its profile. Sometimes it requires jumping through a number of "hoops" to really get it back.I would like to see them expand into other cloud platforms, non-HPE platforms.

It would be helpful to include the generation of reports for times that the network was out of service.The price for Pandora FMS is expensive.Third-party integration should be improved for some commonly used products.This solution requires proper training to get 100% out of it.It would be useful if Pandora FMS included an ISO image (or «software appliance») for each big company that leases virtual private machines (VPS), just like in AWS.When it comes to the definition of local Software Agents for the first time in the open-source version, it can become very tedious.I sincerely believe that Pandora needs new ideas for functionality closer to advanced device security monitoring.Pandora FMS is an overall great monitoring solution, but it does not have a community that is as large as Zabbix or Nagios.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The Open Source Community Edition is great to just explore the software, or use it on medium-sized infrastructures.Growing the solution or migrating to the Enterprise version is easy, and various plans are available.The open-source version offers 100% functionality and the hardware requirements for a solution like this one are very modest.In terms of money, the Enterprise version is the cheapest that I have found after a market study.My rule of thumb would be that if you need more than thirty agents, and you lack an automation tool such as Chef or Puppet, you will save a lot of time and money going to the Enterprise edition.You get the license and it includes updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of modules.Pandora FMS is easy to implement and the pricing of licenses is competitive.Only one payment and it includes support, updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of plugins except for SAP and z/OS.
