Hey Chantal:

Was not aware of Cacti.

Nagios gives you the flexibility of using Host groups and Service groups.
Does Zabbix allow that? Aware it has auto discovery, but was not useful for
some scenarios ( under secured VLANs).

While automatating host addition/ service addition process found nagios to
be more resilient. There was also an onlamp article of Nagios implementing
with cfengine ( which is pretty handy)
