After a couple of months since the last update of Pandora FMS, we have been working so hard to introduce you the new Service Pack 2 of the 5.1 version of Pandora FMS, with some new features and many bugs fixed.


– New plugin for ODBC queries in Windows.

– Added the date of the last replication with Metaconsole in setup.

– The Linux plugin to monitor memory now uses a new module (AvailableMemory) to report the
available memory and avoid a bad interpretation of how the system uses the free memory.

Added checkboxes in the item list of the Visual Map view, that allow us to delete elements from the list in a massive way.

– New feature to be able to define agent name using an external command.

Paging in Services view.

– Now it’s possible to set clickable links in the Event Viewer, using the agent custom fields, the instructions fields of the module or the agent description.

Changes in the management of the autocreate_group. It’s possible to force all the
new agents to be created in a group, regardless of the information contained in the agent.

Autologin hash upgraded to mask the username in the URL.

– GIS Maps show the URL of the agent in the agent tooltip.
