Pandora FMS Enterprise has a solution to manage hundreds of megabytes of data per day. This solution allows you to reuse the same monitoring agents to collect log data by using a similar syntax to the current monitoring logs. The logs collected by the agents (eventlog or text files) are literally stored (RAW) in the disk of the Pandora FMS server. With these data, you can perform researches on thousands of lines of logs of our systems.
