pandorafms_server Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies pandorafms_server-7.0NG.757.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

What is Pandora FMS?
--------------------

Pandora FMS is a monitoring application to watch systems and applications.
Pandora FMS allows to know the status of any element of your bussiness systems.
Pandora FMS watches your hardware, your software, your multilayer system and, of
course, your Operating System. Pandora FMS can detect a network interface down
or the movement of any NASDAQ new technology market value. If you wish, Pandora
FMS can send a SMS message when your system or your application fails... or when
Google stock value drops below 330 US$.

Pandora FMS will adjust, like an octopus, to your systems and requirements,
because it has been designed to be open, modular, multiplattform and easy to
customize. Pandora FMS is developed for system administrators.

What else can Pandora FMS do?
-----------------------------

Pandora FMS is a monitoring tool that not only measures if a parameter is right
or wrong. Pandora FMS can quantify the state (right or wrong), or store a value
(numeric or alphanumeric) for months if necessary. Pandora FMS can measure
performances, compare values among differen systems and set alarms over
thresholds. Pandora FMS works against a Database so that it can generate
reports, statistics, SLA and meausre anything: Operating Systems, aplications
and hardware systems—such as firewalls, proxies, Databases, web servers, VPN,
routers, switches, processes, services, remote accesses to servers, etc.
everything integrated in a open and distributed architecture. Pandora FMS can be
deployed over any Operating System, with specific agents for each platform.
There are already agents for Windows (2000, XP, 2003), GNU/Linux, Solaris,
HP-UX, BSD, AIX, IPSO and OpenWRT.

Pandora FMS not only gathers information through its agents, but it can also
monitor any hardware sistem with TCP/IP connectivity —such as load balancing
systems, routers, switches, printers, etc.— through SNMP and TCP/ICMP checks.

Often the question "What kind of things can be monitored?" shows up, since
Pandora FMS can —virtually— monitor anthing, sometimes is convenient give some
specific examples. Pandora FMS can monitor any process or system that, though a
command, returns a value, and also any value inside a log file of the Operating
System.
