iptraf!

I'm a total no-know on monitoring whatever, but I think linux's default iptraf is still an awesome general purpose ethernet monitoring tool - try to get that for free on Windows, ha!. I think there's just a shortage (at some places) of quality basic functionality tools for basic operations. Well, good luck wit your poll.

Where's Gkrellm?

edit: Maybe if I add the url ** http://members.dslextreme.com/users/...m/gkrellm.html **

It's worth a try.

collectd?

...and I would like to see collectd listed (http://ipv4.collectd.org/), because for the small network I have, ntop + collectd rocks!

As for single system monitoring - I really like gkrellm.
