OpenVAS is not siems but more of vulnerability scanner like Nessus. But you are into siems than probably OSSIM which is open source coming for AlienVault.

You can see the difference btw the commercial tool from AlienVault see https://www.alienvault.com/resource-center/white-papers/ossim-vs-usm

Another is can ask for demo from Recordedfuture.

Not bad either esp if you are already running OSSEC for HIDS and Snort/Suricata/Bro for NIDS rule cum event driven detection. It does full capture with its sensor which SIEMS may not necessary have included that. It comes with analysis tools too which is quite well used in the open community. It covers server and client setup too. Check the architecture

They do have active community maintaining it so it does give good crebility but just need some hands on for beginner. If you need to have expertise to setup and managed the rule to reduce false positive then the good thing is they have commercial support too.

So can it be used as SiEM for SMB instead of Alienvalt?

Not entirely unless you are only looking at HIDS alerts from OSSEC and NIDS alerts from Snort/Suricata

Already mentioned the AlienVault OSSIM, being open source, has community-supported threat intelligence feeds available. This is an option. I doubt the costing of other SIEMS is very much lower but you need their respective sales support to advise instead. Regardless, for your info
For example, LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform is the only studied SIEM product that strongly supports all seven criteria. Close behind it is McAfee ESM and SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, followed by EMC RSA Security Analytics, HP ArcSight ESM, and Splunk Enterprise. Any of these products are strong candidates for enterprise usage. For organizations that cannot afford a full-fledged commercial SIEM product, the AlienVault OSSIM offers some basic SIEM capabilities with no software costs.
