Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"In the future, we may have double the number of devices, and we do not want to have any issues with performance in the data display.""Improvements are needed for server and network discovery, including service-based discovery.""An update to the Android app would be appreciated.""A nice feature in the next release would be an automation module to run workflow actions.""I think some improvements to the Android app would be good.""I find that this software is resource heavy, and demands a lot of processing capacity.""I would like to have a dashboard with all assets displayed, with a quick hover-over status.""Pandora FMS is an overall great monitoring solution, but it does not have a community that is as large as Zabbix or Nagios."

"In the next release, I would like to see more integration with other solutions.""The product collects a lot of data but it does not assure that it collects all of it.""The solution should have more sensors regarding fiber intelligence for security measures.""I would like to see an improvement and some innovation in the customer interface.""This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex.""It does not have a user-friendly interface and it is difficult to use.""It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button embedded in the solution so you could ask questions and get answers.""The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too expensive compared to other solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."
