We are very pleased to announce the new Service Pack 1 for version 5.1 of Pandora FMS, with many new features and numerous bug fixes compared to the last release that we launched last June. You can find out everything below:
*Improved planning of scheduled stops, and their exclusion in all reports of SLA. Now, the reports show those periods that have been excluded due to a scheduled stop. The system administrator can decide if it’s possible to set scheduled stops after the event or not. You can download the scheduled tasks on a CSV.
*New multithreaded SNMP traps server.
*New Packet loss remote plugin that measures the packet loss in a network. This plugin is now included by default in Pandora FMS.
*New features added to the IPAM module (IP address management): IP’s reservation, massive operations and delegation of network management to users non administrators of Pandora FMS.
*Unix agent now supports UDP mode for remote command execution.
*Now it’s possible to visualize traffic graphics per interface (combined) from the main agent view:
* Non-init modules will not be deleted anymore by default. There is an option of the setup that controls this behaviour.
*Improved the verbosity of Pandora FMS, introducing by default the server level 3 and showing some critical problems as events.
*Improved the server log rotation, with a new parameter to specify number of rotated log to be stored in disk prior deletion.
*Added dynamic macros for agent custom fields.
*Optional translation of OID’s for better performance in the SNMP traps processor.
*New contextual help system and “step by step” Wizard, that we hope will help less experienced users to take advantage of the best options of Pandora FMS.
*Rewamped code for TCP checks, improving performance and speed.
*Unix Agent log parser now supports log rotation detection by inode.
*From this version, Unix agent supports global macros.
*Fixed some pending issues in the http/Goliat server, increasing performance and speed.
*Improved usability of the Pandora FMS menus: creating an “anchor” mode and allowing the scroll of the contents without having to scroll down to the bottom of the page.
*Improvements in the services: Added new “simple” mode that allows to create services without taking into account the weights, and considering only two types of elements: critical and non critical.
*API & CLI new functions (add event comment, recreate collections and others).
*New dynamic radial network maps.
*New IP SLA Cisco plugin to measurig quality of service in networks of latest technology. Specially recommended for VoIP services or services sensitives to package loss and high latency.
*Audit information can now be exported to Excel or PDF.
*New statistics system of traps received which is very useful to filter by source IP or OID.
