Maybe it's not as popular as the likes of Nagios, Hyperic and Zenoss, but Zabbix is nothing less of a monitoring tool. I've evaluated almost all in the list (and more), and Zabbix came as a complete surprise where it had many features provided only in the commercial versions of Hyperic and Zenoss. It's extensible and really great. Takes a bit longer to setup, but totally worth the effort.

For a small team of maintainers, Zabbix guys are doing a seemingly impossible job. I'm grateful for a wonderful FOSS tool.

I use gkrellm to get a general idea of what my machine is doing and htop for in-depth look on what my hardware is doing. cpu usage, mem usage, current, idle, and zombie process, uptime, and a few other options. I use it on both of my linux machines.

GroundWorks is NOT monitoring tool, its merely a skin to Nagios. Also cacti a monitoring tool?

ntop is just a tool to monitor traffic. When you say "monitoring application" it must support at least basic server metrics and some sort of alert mechanism.

It's already been stated that this category is going to get overhauled next year.

Honestly ... OpenNMS is the only thing I've heard of in this list.
(I haven't used it either ... Just heard of it!)

Well, now you've heard of the others.

Honestly, you haven't been looking around through monitoring apps much if you haven't heard of more of these.

Spend some time with google. You have to be a bit thoughtful, because monitor and mon are not very specific search terms. But, once you get some traction, you can find a lot of stuff. I ended up with a spreadsheet of products (many not on this list) categorized by approach and functions, with a couple dozen columns of functions and properties. I chose mon, because I like utter simplicity and extensibility -- sort of the unix tools mantra.
