WHAT’S NEW Pandora FMS 742

This post is also available in : Spanish Japanese

In release 742, we have updated some components integrated into the solution, such as cURL 7.65.3 version, in addition to several bugs being solved to help improve software performance, such as an error in SLA-Wizard reports or on private dashboards.

We also have updates, such as new integrations in the Pandora FMS plug-in library: RabbitMQ and Grafana.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN PANDORA FMS

New reports in landscape mode

Given the needs of Pandora FMS customers, the way in which reports are shown in landscape mode has been enhanced. Thus, SLA reports and graphs will be adjusted to the available space, improving their display.

Improvements in report display

In this update 742, new fonts have been added and their rendering has been improved. The aim of the Pandora FMS team is for users to have some of the best monitoring reports on the market, the most professional and visual ones.

New plugin: RabbitMQ (Enterprise)

RabbitMQ is an open source message negotiation software that works as a messaging queue manager. It implements the standard Advanced Message Queuing Protocol, and it is within middleware messaging category.

The plugin, developed by Pandora FMS, will allow data to be obtained from monitoring RabbitMQ environments. It will not be necessary to install any additional software, since the information is obtained using the messaging software API.

More information in our library of integrations.

Grafana integration with Pandora FMS

Grafana Datasource Extension is the latest addition to the Pandora FMS plugin library. This integration will allow to represent the data obtained through Pandora FMS monitoring modules in Grafana dashboards.

We will talk about this plugin in further detail in an article on our blog, so stay tuned!

Troubleshooting

  • Fixed bug that prevented saving a backup task when created from Pandora FMS Discovery.

  • Fixed error where the agent’s event bar showed them randomly.
  • Fixed bug that affected network maps when removing a node.
  • Fixed error in GIS maps, whereby the information window was not displayed when clicking twice on an element.
  • Fixed bug that created empty reports when they were made by means of the SLA-Wizard from the Metaconsole.

  • Fixed bug in private dashboards that replaced their owner by the last user who had edited the name or the slide elements checkbox options.

  • Fixed error where, when applying a policy with an SNMP v3 module, the credentials were not set in the module.

  • Fixed bug in the service map widget in the dashboards section when the show legend option was selected.

  • Fixed issue that prevented removing line type items from visual consoles.
  • Fixed bug in Custom Graphs section, since when a “bullet chart” graph was created, the entities appeared both in the horizontal bar and in some vertical ones.
