We did, but we think that are better solutions.

e.g. Nagios (Open Source and Free).

VMware vCenter Operations Manager or Veeam One is also free the basic edition.

There is more support for Nagios for VMware vSphere, Zabbix is just a general monitoring appliance.

Operations Manager is even better because it has access to all the vCenter Server database, for Capacity Planning.

It depends what you requirements are in terms of Monitoring Hosts and Guests ?

Primarily for emailing/notifying - any server outages, spikes, reporting of resources etc..
we only have essentials though.

vCenter Server will send emails if a host is down or disconnected.

What sort of reporting ?

Capacity? Performance ?

vCenter provides lots of performance graphs, you can print or export.

If you want reporting, look at Veeam One for FREE
