I know it's technically an add-on for Nagios (and its derivatives), but I think check_mk deserves a mention. Also icinga, if only for the ability to act on multiple items at once.

+1 Nagios. It's ugly, it does not scale easily, configuration maintenance is a pain.
Yet its primitivity is its biggest plus:
If it complains, you can easily understand *why*. So you can rely on it. Which really is the most important thing.
And it's dead easy to put together a new plug-in for any specific problem. Again, because the API is so primi... elegant

Zabbix looks certainly nicer at first; but I cannot understand how *external* PHP plugins could possibly scale.

Zenoss also looks nicer, but I find the big Zope black box in the middle anything than easy to understand or trustable.

OpenNMS carries the scalability crown. But you also have to believe that all the Java and Postgres magic gets it right. Always. And custom monitoring you need to map to SNMP.

Monitoring in today's environments

Nagios is great in monitoring traditional more static servers and applications (db,mail) setups, but it fails short in dynamic (virtual) environments. The need to restart each time the configuration changes makes it hard to use in today's hybrid environments (private/public cloud & data centers).

Nagios had a long run as "the monitoring tool" but is time to look at tools that are more adapted to today's environments. GroundWork Monitor and Zabbix are better tools than Nagios to address today's needs.

Don´t mix up Nagios

I voted for Nagios, Not Nagios XI. That´s 2 different things! Nagios is a cool os project. There is like 10 products out there based on Nagios with a commercial touch. The most common is Op5, Opsview and Nagios XI. So please don´t mix up our votes please! I don´t see any Nagios XI in the chart, so from my point of view XI didn't get a single vote! Sorry, but true!

I´m sure people voted here voted for the project Nagios!

Just my comment! Nagios Core user
