    Nagios and Cacti for network traffic, server resource and downtime monitoring. Intellipool Network Monitor for environment monitoring - but I am going to look at merging this in with nagios and cacti.

    Nagios, and I'm just working on a redundant installation on another machine elsewhere in the building, because our power is so flaky. Otherwise if the first box cuts out, I don't know about it.

    Edit: and MRTG for routers, with the data dropped into Nagios.

    Nagios here, wireshark for protocol analysis, netstumbler and a wi-spy for wireless.

    Nagios and Cacti - I think Cacti is a brill bit of kit - and has helped identify several network issues.
