Still using Icinga/Nagios and occasionally Zabbix. Might switch to Sensu in the coming year.

I used to work with Nagios but since I knew about ICINGA, man its better than nagios.

I love nagios but Icinga seems cooler, easier and looks are preety good.

wireshark isnt a network monitor, its a packet capture tool. its functionality doesn't qualify it for this poll.
