See NANOG for a lot of similar "I want a monitor" questions, and their
answers, which either are a list of tools that people like, own, support
or sell, or the better answer: what do you want to monitor.
Especially as that includes the type of devices/hosts that you want to
monitor and what properties of them you want to look at and in which way.

In the end you most likely end up either mixing up a bunch of tools or
something that you build yourself.
