    I think you can additionally use free small utils: EasyNetMonitor or Fiddler.

    At work we use Monit for basic monitoring, very easy to setup, easy to write check rules and easy to deploy via config mgmt.

    Nagios is a nightmare compared to Monit.

    Very nice list. I favor the Ncurses interfaces sometimes. I like Nagios but it really needs a simplified interface to set it up. You shouldn’t have to spend a month understanding it to get it to do ANYTHING…
