A new release of Pandora FMS is coming after Christmas. This new 4.0.3 version is a minor update with new interesting features and a lot of bugs fixed to make this version more reliable.
This version has two new incredible features: command snapshot and graphic comparison.
Command snapshot allows you to get a static image of any command output of your system. If something goes wrong, command snapshot gets and offers you information in detail about the problem so you don’t have to execute any command to find out what’s going on. For example, you could compare the CPU usage value with a snapshot of the “top” command. This feature also stores snapshots in a history database so you can check it anytime you like.
The Graphic comparison feature generates two graphs to compare time intervals. With this feature, you can compare a time range with the previous interval. For example, you could compare this week with last week, or this month with last month. The outcome will be displayed in two different charts. Although, both lines could also be displayed in the same chart. It’s up to you. This feature is very useful to compare data and trends when you made a huge change in your system.
Our main goal is to offer the best monitoring system in the market. We are committed to improve the reliability and performance of Pandora FMS. That is why this release comes with a lot of bug fixed and performance improvements which are mentioned below.
