But, some is cacti and some is a program called 'spong' that I found many years ago. It is still around at http://spong.sourceforge.net/ but I'd probably use nagios or zabbix for small-scale things that do notifications if I were starting now. However I need something that scales up and does both snmp and other probes and does historical graphs along with notifications. I think that's going to be opennms although it is more difficult than some of the others to install since it needs the Sun jdk and tomcat as the web server installed first. http://www.opennms.org.
We're using ZABBIX and I love it. No where near as much work as setting up Nagios and it does all you're listing here: SNMP, custom probes, historical graphs, notifications. I recommend everyone to check it out (http://www.zabbix.com/). According to their website it scales pretty well too, they have tested ZABBIX with 5000 monitored devices and services.
