I have been using MRTG and Nagios but I keep getting flooded with alerts and every time I make a change I have to update my configurations files. I keep hearing about Hyperic, Open NMS, and Zenoss but haven't tried them. There are three of us in IT and I want to make sure we get reliable pages without getting flooded with bogus alerts. We want to make sure that we have decent performance graphs but mainly we want ping and website transaction tests. Has anyone used any of these is one better than the others?"
