pandora_agent(1) Pandora FMS software agent


/usr/bin/pandora_agent <configuration_file>

/etc/init.d/pandora_agent_daemon [ stop | start | restart ]


Pandora FMS Agent is a perl-based application, which collects information about local system, running commands and gathering its output to create a XML data file, sent to Pandora FMS server.

It uses /etc/pandora/pandora_agent.conf to define what information is gathered and how to get it, running local commands. It uses a startup script on /etc/init.d/pandora_agent_daemon to control the status of the agent service.

Pandora FMS agent uses tentacle_client to transfer information, but can also transmit that information using a local filesystem copy (NFS, SMB, local), SSH or FTP.
