Advantages of network monitoring
Identifying and correcting anomalous behavior
A large network is an often idiosyncratic ecosystem with a life of its own. A good monitoring system can become essential in order to detect any bad habits, or network capacity gaps, or any services which are taking up too much of the system’s capacity; and, of course, identifying trouble spots in the network, from hardware, services, users, or external resources which could be overloading the network.
Access all areas
Occasionally we don’t know how to enter our clients’ internal networks and extract the data we need. Pandora FMS offers unlimited flexibility in monitoring third party networks, allowing access through decentralized, high performance, distributed servers to carry out network discovery, ICMP, SNMP and WMI tests.
Service quality management
With Pandora FMS you can receive reports giving up-to-date data on service quality when and how you need them; daily, by service, whatever your needs. Pandora FMS reports are targeted at demanding service providers, that’s why we have to make them precise to four decimal places.
Every kind of graph, covering any timeframe
If you can measure it, you can turn it into a graph. This is especially useful for making visual correlation analysis, analyzing trends, capacity planning, and keeping an eye on your network. Nothing beats the human eye, but an integrated dashboard is always handy.
F for flexible
Flexible means we can adapt to any type of network topology wether it be mixed, distributed, disperse or shifting.
Throughout the years we’ve included features that other vendors include with separate products, forcing customers into further investments just to have a complete package. Our all-in-one, coherent and homogenous package has included several network solutions, amongst a wide array of other features.
Advanced network monitoring
Our probes can carry out network diagnostics, even without external access. Rapid deployment and a centralized system of management means fewer headaches for the client, and a heads-up if something goes wrong.
Auto-discovery and automatic inventory creation of the network’s systems and elements.
Automatic link-level and network-level network sweep.
Advanced agent-less and/or agent-based remote monitoring.
Monitoring response times lower than 10 seconds for both agent modalities (agent-based or agent-less).
Management of subnetworks can be delegated to independent work teams
User defined visual consoles and dashboards.
