Been using NAGIOS, and have customized it too the point it no longer is a network monitoring tool, but is monitoring all sorts of things..

1) Temperature/Humidity/Security Lighting
2) EDI Transactions with my Vendor
3) AXIS middleware/webservice gateway processes
4) WIFi signal characteristics and pages me when reception goes bad, or I lose an AP.

In short, NAGIOS is not really a network tool anymore, it is sorta all knowing supreme being in my enterprise.

:-)

In fact, all of my data goes into postgres, so I can ask stuff like "What was the average temperature last year on the roof?"

I even track global warming trends!!!
