I am looking for a networking monitoring tool similar to GFI Remote Management. I want something web based where you can monitor several clients.

I have come across the following before:
GFI Remote Management = did not like it, did not find user friendly
ManageEngine = expensive
CentraStage = am considering.

I am looking for something that does not cost too much for small networks.

Thanks.

Community edition is free and you can pay for support where you need it.  Supports tiered servers and everything.  Very advanced product and I have used it all over the place.

OK. I will go through the website in detail later, but is it a web based product so I can see all clients via a browser from anywhere?

Yes, all web based.  Very slick product.  Everything is organized in a tree structure.  Templates are inherited down the tree so different graphs and monitoring items are inherited depending on if you put something under the Network->Routers->Cisco tree or the Servers->Linux tree for example.

The even have a VMware appliance version you can dowload ready to go.

Had to look for it, there's a good link here on monitoring tools though I don't know if they're all web based. Might be worth having a look at it:

I used MRTG (It's still running actually), and swapped to Cacti. It's still a bit difficult (Devices, data queries, Graphs, etc) but well worth it...just give it a try. Cacti is a brilliant software beside nagios and MRTG ..... to narrow down the problem
