Pandora's Box

Conclusion

I've barely skimmed the surface of Pandora FMS, considering the fact that its official documentation spans over 1,000 pages and offers over 40 hours of training videos.

However, I have set up the perfect launchpad to help you begin exploring the server's capabilities. Once you've configured the agents and familiarized yourself with the monitors, you can start setting alerts. You can also equip the server with a mail service provider's SMTP settings to receive alerts via email, based on predefined criteria.

The project regularly hosts webinars on its YouTube channel [6] and also offers over 40 tutorial videos to help you get the most out of your installation. Together with the detailed documentation and the forum boards, these invaluable resources help you get acquainted with Pandora FMS and adapt it to your needs.
