Comment We use--but don't like--Nagios (Score 1) 1 1

Nagios is reliable, and provides a few useful graphs, but it's a total bear to configure; you'll have to write massive config files in a very limited descriptor language. That said, you get very fine grained control and I've never had any uptime problems, but the dashboard for it is really hideous looking.

We'd like to move to Zenoss, but we have no time for that.

If you have that many servers, I'd advise you to contract someone who's done this quite a bit to install and configure the monitoring system.

Often statistics are used as a drunken man uses lampposts -- for support rather than illumination.
