One thing zabbix doesn't appear to do (yet) is auto-discovery.  You
can give opennms a set of network ranges and it will auto-probe them
for a configurable set of services and start monitoring what it
finds.  Likewise you can give snmp options for ranges and it will
start collecting a default set of information from the hosts that
respond - and it knows to collapse multiple interfaces found with
snmp into a single 'node'. It defaults to a summarized view that is
nice for a large set of machines.  Both products seem to have active
development so it's hard to tell which will end up with more features.
