I use Nagios for monitoring. Its really more of a is it up for switches and printers. It does show resource usage on Linux and windows.

For help desk we use Hesk. http://www.hesk.com

Both are free, though I did pay the onetime suggested fee for hesk.

I got Ntopng running.  


Have it set up with a mysql back end, saving every packet sent through the core switch for 30 days.  Had to use a 10 Gig fiber ethernet card to keep up with the traffic and not drop packets.

Open source.  Took a bit to get it running right (restarted with a fresh install of centos 7 times before it was the way I wanted it).

Pretty impressive stuff.

Hi All,

Is anyone using Lansweeper for network monitoring/helpdesk/asset management?  We've been using a trial version and it has been quite helpful.  If not, what is your preferred network monitoring tool?  Thanks for any comments.
