Bandwidth monitoring tools - MRTG vs ZABBIX

      The MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) is a  free open source tool written in perl to monitor the traffic load  or bandwidth usage on network links. MRTG generates HTML pages containing PNG images which provide a LIVE visual representation of this traffic. 

Zabbix is an enterprise open source monitoring solution for networks and applications. Using zabbix network administrators can monitor and track the status of various switches, routers, servers, network services  and other network components.

Here is a comparison of the two :

Open source  yes yes

Web based interface no yes
Auto discoery no  yes
