not seen those problems.
Also using Zenoss on Centos 5.2 for monitoring here at $dayjob. I've
been keeping it on the current version using their "native" RPM for a

Zope is a little bit of a PITA, we just run apache in front of it.
I looked at quite a few free monitoring solutions about a year ago, and
Zenoss really seemed the most feature full, and definitely best UI. They
seem to be developing faster than any of the others as well.

Zabbix certainly didn't seem very popular at the end vote there.
