What’s new in the latest Pandora FMS release, Pandora FMS 765
NEW FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS
Improved network maps
Multiple changes have been made to network maps to improve the usability, performance and network map setup.
- Map drawing and refreshing is automatic and dynamically reflects the changes in the network, highly improving the existing display in previous versions.
- The possibility of deleting “Pandora FMS” node as well as all its relationships has been added. Usability has also been improved in manual relationship management between nodes.
- Added linking between network maps. When there is a dummy node pointing to another network map, it will be possible to access that map from the options of the dummy node.
New report type: System module inventory
The new type of report “System module inventory” has been created, through which you will see an inventory of the modules generated in your Pandora FMS installation registered by module name, remarking the necessary information for those modules that have the same module name.
Sending reports by mail as an alert action
A new feature has been added to Pandora FMS alert system whereby it is possible to send reports by email in PDF thanks to its incorporation as new actions/commands within Pandora FMS.
