This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they become outdated quickly and attract opinion-based answers. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Share your research.

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The closest thing I know of is Wireshark, but that seems like only a partial solution. You'd need something to interpret the data from it to get the rest of the way to Network View, it would seem. – Doc Jul 6 '11 at 20:21

I've seen Nagios used to great effect, and it is open source. I also have used Mikrotik's The Dude for network management but sadly it is not open source, but certainly very versatile!
