Hi

After some advice - I have three internet connections and a bunch of services that consume them. The majority of these are hosted on VMware ESXi, but there is the odd tablet / phone /physical PC as well. I want a basic monitoring webpage that shows utilisation so I can move around services based on usage patterns (automated would be fantastic but manual is fine) Just about all the internet connectivity comes to a central point - a Mikrotik CSS326-24G-2S+RM. I'm going to look at Zabbix for the overall port utilisation and hopefully some sort of layer 3 graphics but anything anyone has used for this kind of thing before?

I really like observium for this purposes and best of all it is free and super easy to setup.

Thanks all - I'm looking at Zabbix and librenms. The latter appears to be a fork of observium but has alerts for the community edition. Plus the lead dev of Observium appears to be a right @rse from what I read!!
