We run Iris - home-grown (South Africa), great support, small/nimble
team that are able to fix issue, add features and give advice.

Very flexible, captures plenty of data out-the-box, supports a ton of
vendors and data points, e.t.c.

It's a commercial solution, but not out of reach. Heck, even I can
afford it :-).


We moved from a Cacti/SmokePing/Observium/Zabbix combo to Iris 2 years
ago. Much happiness.
