    We monitor the health and status of the server
    For Ex.. CPU Load, Disk space, Available memory, swap space etc...

    How do you get Alerts in that tool ? Can you explain it,?
    All these tools are configured in the servers by Level3/Senior Sys Admins..
    These tools are capable of pulling data from the server and displaying it in UI, such that whenever a service goes down an alert pops up in UI

    correct me if I'm wrong anywhere

    Hi

    I use Nagios for monitoring all my hosts since two years ago, but now I need to monitor other things in my Solaris hosts that Nagios plugins do not offer me. I've checking other similar tool Pandora FMS. It's very easy to set up and in my Solaris hosts I managed to monitor my needs, more easily than if I had created a new Nagios plugin (I'm not a developer). I am thinking to migrate my Nagios to Pandora FMS and I would like to know if any forum user is using Pandora FMS. So far all the reviews that I have of the application are good (not many) and the truth that I solved my environment me much better than other monitoring tools.

    Thanks
