Pandora's architecture is interesting. It's open so you can easily extend and enhance it. It's simpler to customize Pandora compared to other solutions. It's also scalable enough to support large environments.

It is easy to create your own custom modules if you just know a little bit of scripting. If you have unique requirements, you can just make your own modules.

You can even grab checks from other vendors. There are open-source checks for various things such as SMTP, etc. There is a long list of different ones from Nagios. You can just use them, and within seconds, you get yourself a check that is monitoring whatever you need. It is really flexible. I guess that's why they call it Pandora Flexible Monitoring System (FMS).

It is reliable. It does the job, and it alerts. It is also surprisingly feature-rich. Our network guy just recently asked about a particular protocol to monitor the bandwidth on the network, which is not a common protocol. When I looked it up, and I found that they cover it. It is very mature for a not-so-known product.

The most valuable features are auto-discovery and automatic detection of the network topology and network monitoring.

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.

I like this solution a lot because it has a very large Hispanic community and the platform looks very friendly. Given the need for organizations to monitor their networks, I find Pandora to be very useful. Overall, I really like the solution and I will continue training. My advice is to make more documentation available in Spanish.
