The purpose of this guide is to introduce Pandora FMS, in a quick and concise way, to someone who is not familiar with the tool, but has a medium/high knowledge of networks and systems. The purpose is not to go through all the Pandora FMS functionalities, but only the most relevant ones, so that a user that goes through the whole guide can execute basic administration and operation tasks in record time.

Please note that the official Pandora FMS certification courses last 40 hours, and that the official documentation extends beyond the 120 topics. With this guide we intend to build a bridge for a smooth entry into Pandora FMS.

At present, due to the very good speed on the Internet (100 mbps or more), it is recommended to make an online installation (cloud) and, once finished, go to the monitoring starting point.
