Packaged modules/templates/etc - Re-inventing the wheel?
« on: August 04, 2010, 01:38:11 PM »
Hello!

I am currently working on setting up Pandora to monitor our network and Windows server operations. I have spent most of my day developing WMI-based modules for monitoring and reporting upon a variety of server details. However, I'm surely not the only person that has done this via WMI (or even the software agent which would be preferable for GPO purposes), so I was wondering if anyone was aware of any packaged modules/templates/etc that may have been created already so that I am not re-inventing the wheel here.

Thanks in advance!! :D

Take a look here:

If you can not find what you want, it's always possible to put your stuff here to help other people ;-)

Thanks for the tip, but I had checked out the repository already and didn't see anything quite what I was looking for, so it's back to configurating for me. :D

On a side note - When it comes to configuring the WMI modules - Anyone have any advice on the setup? I can't seem to get accurate reading on anything, and none show up under the "Full List of Monitors" under the agent view.

I've tried a variety of different settings in attempt to get it working right, but so far I've had no luck.

Attached is a screenshot of the attempted setup page of one of the modules.

Sorry... I have no experience with WMI modules... My tip is: try to run your query from the shell in the pandora server using the "wmic" comand line. Do it as simple as possible and after getting success with this, try to reproduce the simple query inside pandora.

  My best try... Good luck.
