For free I really like Cacti, you can see it here:  it builds on top of MRTG so if you already have that running then installing Cacti is a snap.

If you want to be all you can be and are willing to pay for it.... then you can use something like whatsUp Gold or solarwinds

Dear woolmilkporc:... i need a software for linux or cenots....this software is for window..!

oopss.. this is also for linux.. thanks woolmilkporc
Dear sadaa,
nagios is in no way (no way!) for Windows alone!
You should read things carefully!
In my view Cacti is good if you want to look at graphs etc.. Nagios is good if you are more text oriented. I use both Nagios for network and service monitoring and cacti for collecting information through snmp and graphing
Collecting snmp information and graphing it is no problem at all for nagios.

Bast Monitoring:

easily my favourite. its managed so if the software goes down or machine hosting it, you are alerted by an offsite server.

the do all the usual management / monitoring stuff but have extras like trend analysis and fault history. SMS alerting. centrally managed so its set up by professionals so you dont find out later that you set your monitoring up wrong :op

they also do workstation monitoring and its really cheap. useful for health checks and detecting faults with clients. helps us with our budgetting for new gear, etc....

they set it all up for you so its guarrenteed to work
