Open source Icinga and Nagios would work fine, and the configurations
should be (mostly) interchangable, with a notable exception.

Icinga's host object type has an "address6" paramter, which Nagios does
not have. For Nagios, a patch is available in http://goo.gl/IHkKE

shows one way of doing dual stack monitoring of a single service, using
the "check_multi" monitoring plugin.
