 What software do you use to monitor your network and Servers .

I've always used IPSentry but I'm looking for a change.

We use Nagios to monitor everything from our HPUX servers to our Linux web servers to our various Windows servers and Cisco and Foundary switches and routers. It is a pretty powerful tool and easy to customized.

 Wow, I guess I'm going against the flow here.  Nagios was always a pain in the ass to me for day to day stuff.  Maybe it's better now, but 3-4 years ago it was horrible.

Check out Zenoss or Cacti for great open source monitoring tools.  Also SolarWinds Orion is probably the most popular commercial product.

Use Groundwork Open or Nagiosxi, all the manual configuring stuff and gui wrapper all done for you.

I use Cacti.

Its free and does a nice job of monitoring availability via ICMP and/or SNMP. However, it's a pretty powerful graphing tool as well.

Nagios for monitoring(you can use graphic gui like Centreon).

Cacti is more for graphing. Zenoss is good too but I find the UI counter-intuitive. People also like opennms to monitor networks.

I looked at the Orion demo and it looks like a pretty much complete product. It looks awesome at the first view.
