New features and improvements

New visual console status: Maintenance

The new visual console status Maintenance has been added. Thanks to this new status, changes can be made to a visual console, and if someone has a link to it, they will not see how changes are being made until they are fully made.

Maintenance Pandora FMS

Trap history

The possibility to generate a trap history in the history database has been added to improve the performance of this feature in the console and improve the performance of the main database.

Collections on the Satellite server

The possibility of adding collections to the Satellite server has been added to be able to deploy plugins with it.

Scaling states based on time

It has incorporated a scaling of states that can be modified depending on the time they have been in the same state. An option is incorporated for how many consecutive states must be met in the “Warning” status to switch to “Critical” status without the data being so.

Credential store: WMI and SNMP

Although the credential store already existed in Pandora FMS, the possibility of saving them to be used in WMI and SNMP modules has been incorporated.

Exclusion word list for passwords

An excluded-password list has been added so that the system does not let users enter certain weak passwords, reinforcing system security.

SNMP wizard improvements

The possibility of managing the SNMP modules that will come by default in the SNMP interfaces wizard has been added. With this new development you can see performance improved when managing large network interfaces.

New dashboard widget: Grouped Meter graphs

A new widget has been added to dashboards, “Grouped Meter graphs”. Through this widget you may select several modules with their warning and critical states to be displayed in a bar graph, which can be selected manually or will come with the default configuration of each module.
