We are comfortable with installing Dell OpenManage on VMware ESX 4 and getting SNMP monitoring setup.

We have been testing SNMP monitoring with VMware ESXi 4 and have gotten the Dell VIB installed and have it configured to the point where it is sending out the SNMP to a a trap server. The problem that we have run into is that it wants us to license it which means spending money.

So I guess my question is are you able to do SNMP monitoring of ESXi 4 without paying anything? If not what is the cheapest option to achieve SNMP monitoring of the host?
