I'm putting together a list of NMS systems for system (hardware, cpu util%, memory util%) and application monitoring rather than network management for our environment. We are looking for low cost / opensource solutions that have agents and/or reliable agentless monitoring for windows, linux and solaris hosts. I've put together a preliminary list, but was hoping that if someone has a solution they are happy with they would forward the info to me. Once I get the complete list, I'll re-post what I've found.

The list I have so far is:


Hyperic         http://www.hyperic.com/
OpenNMS         http://www.opennms.org/wiki/Main_Page
opsview         http://www.opsview.org/
osimius         http://www.osmius.net/en/
PandoraFMS              http://pandorafms.org/
Zabbix          http://www.zabbix.com/
Groundwork              http://www.groundworkopensource.com/
Nagios          http://www.nagios.org
Zenoss          http://zenoss.com
OpManager               http://www.manageengine.com
Orion                   http://www.solarwinds.com/products/orion/
BigBrother              http://bb4.com/

Any others that should be added to the list to eval?
