Hi Brendan,

If you don't mind spending a few pennies on a commercial system, I'd  
suggest Intermapper. Runs on pretty much any platform (Linux, FreeBSD,  
Windows, OSX, Solaris), uses a dedicated database, distributed polling/ 
collection and the like.

Whats nice is it does real-time analysis of traffic, graphing,  
threshold alarming, trap collection, etc.. as well has Netflow/J-Flow/ 
Sflow collection integrated into 1 system. I've using it to monitor  
M7is, MX240s, J4350/6350's and SRX series;  and is reasonably  
inexpensive based on what you get feature-wise.
