    Engineer Toolset as CACTI replacement

      I'm asked to find a replacement for our CACTI installation, which has been mainly tasked with monitoring Up/Down status and recording bandwidth in/out using pretty graphs for management. The only downside is no one wants to deal with scripts and (con) figuring out cacti has been a nightmare..The replacement needs to be: 

      - able to keep historical data of the measured variable (bandwidth, logged in users, etc)

      - present said data in a way management can understand - (can create pretty reports)

      - easy to install , configure and maintain

      - must be able to send email/text if a threshold is reached or if a device is down...

      i'm split between getting a nagios-enabled hardware device and solarwinds engineer toolkit...

       

      any ideas?
