I use Pandora FMS to monitor IT infrastructure, applications, and some business processes. Our clients range in size. For example, one of the bigger environments I'm supporting has about 3,000 devices, including router servers, applications, etc. The smaller client has roughly a hundred.

In comparison with most monitoring software, this software is incredibly easy to use. It does 95% of what we want it to and the remainder is currently waiting on new features that have been added to the roadmap.

We use it for "remote desktop" via eHorus (integrated into console Pandora FMS), to check connectivity, for database status, and disk drive free space capacity. This solution is very useful for keeping track of «Let's Encrypt» certificates (expiration) for our web blog and its uptime.

I used this solution to monitor and control a network of jewelry stores. I use AI for the prevention and prediction of future problems in my company, especially in certain points that I could not control before, such as cameras and alarms.

We use Pandora FMS to monitor both on-premise and Cloud infrastructure, and some KPIs of our application. The SLA reports are simply extraordinary, it's very simple and easy to generate them and see whether the solution is behaving as expected or not.

I use this solution for the testing of possible network monitoring scenarios. I have tried the solution but I am still in the testing phase, reading the documentation and training.

We used this solution for the deployment of a Linux and Windows mixed environment to keep track of the infrastructure and generate periodical capacity plannings, execution of personalized scripts on remote servers to collect data from in-house applications, and to centralize the monitoring of the whole infrastructure.

Our primary use case is the monitoring and control of IT infrastructure.

My primary use case is the daily monitoring of all the network traffic for my bank client. With it, I supervise and monitor more than one hundred nodes and servers of all kinds, such as print servers, file servers, etc. From Pandora, I can have everything controlled and under continuous supervision. I supervise maintenance and optimization of the network infrastructure from Pandora. When we want to monitor a new server or a new machine installed in the pandora network, it detects it automatically and we already have it monitored. It is very easy and practical to work with this tool and is very useful to have at all times controlled what happens on the network. You can also monitor services published on the network. It is very practical to detect possible points of failure in the network. In short it is a great tool for any network administrator whatever the size of the infrastructure of your network, it will help you to have everything under control. Totally recommended and even recommended.

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.
