I have Nagios up and running, and am satisfied with its "manager-friendly" view.  More to the point, my boss likes it.

The next thing is traffic graphing over switch and router interfaces.  What lightweight tools do you like?  The candidates seem to be MRTG, Cricket (usually mentioned with MRTG, as in "Use MRTG or Cricket for that"), Cacti, and Zabbix.  Possibly some add-ons to Nagios.  Any others?

I don't usually have time to master more than one tool, so I don't get to compare two or more things very often.   What have you used? What do you like? Why? How time-consuming to set up?
