Recommendations for network and system monitoring

Hello Experts - I'm looking for a solution to monitor my network and systems.  I'm using a very old version of SolarWinds ipmonitor at the moment which I generally like but it has its issues.  I don't need anything complex, just something that will watch my servers and network equipment for service interruptions and alert me when something happens as when a server crashes or a windows service stops working.  I'd prefer something easy to use and quick to setup.  Since this will be included in next year's budget I'm open to paid software (like ipmonitor).  Please let me know what you would suggest, thanks!

you can look at icinga (free) or nagios xi

nagios core is free but there is more back-end administration involved whereas xi has a graphical interface which makes it easier if you are not linux savvy

I checked out icinga in the past, I'm not a huge fan of the user interface and know very little about Linux.  Thank you though!
