The only commercial solution that comes close to what we need as an
enterprise is the product suite from SolarWinds, but its expensive when
your talking 8-12,000 IP enabled devices.

It's cheap. For logging Splunk works well.
We've looked at free

seems to do the job without a ton of scripting and
What we don't like is the cost of Intermapper
Flows - ideally we'd like to have NetFlow monitoring on everything, but
at $300 USD per router + maintenance, it's hard to justify. If anyone
knows of decent NetFlow analysers that are less costly for 200+ routers,
I'd like to hear about them.

Subject: [nznog] Nagios vs. OpenNMS vs. SomethingElse
If you had
it all to do over again, what would you use for network monitoring:
Nagios, OpenNMS, or something else entirely?
I care about
availaility, latency, loss, jitter, and trap handling for interface
up/down, loss of power, etc. Sensible behavior in situations where
parent routers/links are flapping is also important.
I would very
much appreciate input from folks monitoring 1000+ network elements.
