A List of Network Monitoring Tools for Network and System Administrators

Monitoring, analyzing, managing, and diagraming a network can often be a huge problem for Network and System Administrators.  They are often vendor specific or cost large sums of money to license.  We also have the challenge of so many different network infrastructures, like Wi-Fi and wired.  If you are looking for a tool that may save you money, or is relatively vendor agnostic, you may find something useful in the list.  We have expanded the list to include some other essential tools as well. Not all these tools are perfect, nor all encompassing.  You may need to use some in combination depending on your needs.
