WHAT’S NEW Pandora FMS 746

This release 746 includes a new graphical interface in the Enterprise Log Collection feature. We have also optimized the ISO and created a new plugin that supports Selenium 3. Remember to keep your Pandora FMS updated to avoid bugs and have the latest news of each version ;)


New graphical interface in log collection

This update presents a new graphical interface within log collection, so that custom requests can be made to the ElasticSearch API directly from the Pandora FMS console.

ISO Optimization

In order to improve Pandora FMS server performance, its ISO has been modified, speeding up the configuration process in high availability (HA) environments. From version 746, the system will start the pandora_ha service directly and will activate security directives by default using the .htaccess files for the Apache web server.

Transactional monitoring with agents (UX)

With the arrival of Selenium 3 to Pandora FMS WUX environment, a plugin compatible with this version has been created to be able to launch web transactions separate from agents.

API extension

Pandora FMS keeps on growing and therefore the need to create new API calls too. From this version on, you will be able to obtain a list of agent IDs searched by their alias. In addition, a Metaconsole event ID can be obtained, indicating the node IDs and the event of the node, accordingly.

Metaconsole improvements

The possibility of choosing the data separator for CSV reports within the Visual styles view of Pandora FMS Metaconsole has been added.
