Nagios. Icinga. Zabbix. Spiceworks.

For a few sensors even the paid ones are free. Like PRTG.

HTH,
Dan

BTW, free means you won't have to pay money.
You'll pay with your time, as you'll need to figure out by yourselves how to install and use them.

Thanks for the mention Dan!

Yes, PRTG is free for up to 100 sensors (very roughly 10 devices).  If your environment is bigger than that, you will either need to purchase a commercial license, or look at open-source options.  However, as Dan has already said, free doesn't mean you don't pay.  Open-source products will require someone on staff that can set up an maintain these products, so you end up "paying" in time/effort.  

For an independent comparison of PRTG and Nagios (one of the most popular open-source monitoring tools), check out this article by Funkschau.

If you'd like to give PRTG a try, simply download the free 30-day trial version with unlimited sensors.  After the 30 days it will automatically revert to our 100-sensor freeware version.
