What would you recommend for System Monitoring tools?

We run a very diverse environment on Windows, UNIX (AIX mostly), along with XenDesktop, XenServer, and vSphere. I have seen several monitoring packages out there that are capable of monitoring these, but I'm curious if anyone else has done their research and found a solid solution.

thanks
