[nycbug-talk] Nagios or...?

Hi all,

I've still got some old (1.x) Nagios installs that basically work, but 
have become a bit quirky.  I started looking for info on upgrading and it 
seems like the easiest path they've got is to start from scratch on the 
new version.  Since even that is a fair bit of work, I'm wondering what 
else is out there that's comparable.

Quite some time ago I installed Zabbix and it was a good example of what I 
do not want.  It was pretty much web-only config which was an extremely 
inefficient way to enter more than a handful of devices.

Something that would integrate graphing of some monitored items, ability 
to export usage stats on some monitored services to billing, and some 
pre-made/clonable templates for common devices/services would be my 
pie in the sky solution. :)
