We use Argus
http://www.qosient.com/argus/
I guess we kind of have a paternal link to it. It is very nice, very 
flexible. We are able to monitor our core network, our egress. It has a 
nice model, using probes to get the data and collectors to (guess what) 
collect the data. For any significant amount of traffic, you don't want 
to do complex filtering of the data on the same machine that is trying 
to collect that data.

I am a user of the software, not an implementer or inhouse developer of 
it, so I don't know how hard it is to get up and running. Using it is 
fairly simple though. It is quite flexible and worth looking at.
