"AKIPS continues to lead the market as the only network monitoring system to monitor SNMP, Ping, Syslog, Traps and Netflow, all at one low subscription price, independent of the size of your network “

At $5K/year subscription starting price, I think my definition of “low” differs from AKiPS :)

Look into AKiPS.. Some of the guys from Statseeker made it better :-)

+1 for Cacti.

I tried zenoss & observium but still Cacti is more cool in terms of
tweaking templates as well as the tree mode for easy quick representation.

Thanks for starting this cool thread. Will help in getting links to some of
other cool projects which we don't hear around.

+1 for Statseeker. Ease of use etc (price depends on eg site size etc).
Can do lots on just one mid server unlike some other bloaty solutions out
there.  But we also still use MRTG for some local bespoke measurements

PS you can get a free Eval of statseeker. Obnote, don't work for them
a fairly happy customer
