What are your design goals?  Do you want to address all five points that any good 
network manager should be thinking about? 


Granted, not all NMs are responsible for them all, but invariably, you'll get brought 
in to look at them in one capacity or another.  There are a number of products (free, 
better than free, GPL, commercial but very good) that will run on linux.  You will find that either MRTG or RRDTool are at the "heart" of just about all of the 
really good, innovative tools.  I suspect SmokePing will be in the same group 
very soon.  I think the only reason it's not is because it's fairly new.  Check out RRDWorld while your at it.  That is a good place to get some ideas 
from as well.
