  • View and manage incidents.
  • SNMP console.

The Management menu

The Management menu allows you to view and configure the checks carried out by Pandora FMS Agents, the Modules and components of said checks, the alerts that these modules and agents can launch and how these alerts work. Also:

  • Registered monitoring policies.
  • Users and their profiles.
  • Pandora FMS servers.

The Header

The Pandora FMS header offers several quick links, or shortcuts, to important system features, as well as a search bar.

If there are pending system notifications, an alert icon with a message will be displayed when clicking on it. These messages, like Console email notifications, redirect to the URL of the /etc/crontab file or to a public URL with the force option enabled. If its setting is omitted, it will use localhost by default as the URL.

States and possible values of Agents and Modules

The Agents contain Modules with the different checks they perform. Their states can be:

  • Correct: Color green.
  • Warning/Notice: Color yellow.
  • Critical: Color red.
  • Unknown: Gray color.
  • Not initialized: Not displayed. It appears with blue color only in the management view.

Group View

Summarizes the status of a group of agents based on the color coding from the previous section. In the cases of Warning and Critical, it is only enough for an agent to have one of the two states for the group's state to change accordingly; for the Unknown state you need all your agents to be in that state for the group state to change.

Autocomplete Agent Box

In several sections of Pandora FMS you can search and choose the agents through a special text box

The control starts working when you enter two or more characters.

Table of network interfaces

This table shows information about the network interfaces of the devices to be monitored. It is found in the general view of an Agent, the detailed view of an Agent, in the tree view, certain types of reports, etc.
