If money is a concern, then the best product for the dollar is MRTG ( http://mrtg.hdl.com/mrtg.html ). It is free and grabs stats from your routers, switches, firewalls. If there is a MIB for it, MRTG can grab it. It will report (graph) on traffic in/out, packets in/out, errors, cpu, memory etc. Great tool to start with when money is tight, and you may find it's all you need so you may never end up buying something. Takes about 1 hour to install (windows or unix) and configure. Downside is that it polls devices every 5 minutes, can't go lower unless you have a programmer or someone to re-write code. You can increase the interval, but not make it less than 5 minutes.
Another application is NMIS, It's available on the Cisco centric open source page @ http://cosi-nms.sourceforge.net/ It also has a few more packeages that are free. NMIS should be installed on Solaris or Linux of some sort.
