What NMS do you use and why?

LibreNMS + Weathermap for graphs, real-time, and alerting. Vaping for a
simple Up/Degraded/Down dashboard (great replacement for
Multiping/PingPlotter on a TV). Elastiflow for netflow.

I really really want to like OpenNMS, and would love to use it daily; I
feel like it could handle many integrations well, but have never had the
time to dedicate to fully diving into it. I have used it in the past for
small setups (monitoring ~100 remotely managed routers/firewall) and it did
well, after getting past some learning curves. I keep coming back to it
every 6 months or so and trying the latest version.
