Hi,
I am looking for a solution that will offer the following, I have a reasonable budget and I am really looking for something that does the following:

**********************************************************
Network Monitoring - Cisco Switches, links        
Server Monitoring - Whether up/down (CPU, Memory and disk if poss.) - Windows/ Unix/Linux
Graphing - (showing network devices and state, so they can be put on a large display.) - This can be a seperate product if need be
VMWARE vSphere
Netapps Filers

options Options/ May be added later

AD monitoring
SQL server monitoring
Web Server Monitoring

************************************************************

I have seen the following:

Nimsoft
PRTG Network Monitor
Solarwinds Orion,
PRTG

I have used Zabbix before and I am not really that interested in this for the deployment. I am not really looking at openSource unless they are a super slick solution that I can get support on.

Any personal recommendations would be welcome.
Thanks
