Monitoring (both inside/outside) - What Do You Use?

I asked about this some time ago, but the landscape changes so fast.

 

What do you use for monitoring, where monitoring is both:

 

1. from the outside - such as ping, checking http, etc.  There are a million products and external services (I like NodePing) that do this.

2. from the inside - getting status from the box from inside, like "did MySQL go down" or "was there a RAID event"

We use Observium (licensed version) for most of our internal stuff. We've also been testing PingMax for a developer friend of ours for simple uptime tracking so we have something to show [potential] clients.
 
-external - uptime robot or observium


-internal - opennms


- uptime robot - extra fast to deploy, extra easy to use, very limited


- observium - fast deploy, easy to use, fancy graphs, limited functions


- opennms - slower deploy , pain, pain, pain, but functionality make up for it.

Can you stress the functionality of Opennms? (or moreover what's so great about it).

I looked into it a while back (in addition to Zabbix, Munin, Nagios, etc.) but instead went with plain old SNMP monitoring (Observium).  What does Opennms do better than Observium?  

Uptimerobot (if I recall) is a simple ping monitoring service :p, so yeah very highly limited.

external - zabbix (bulk checks) + uptimerobot (http resources)

internal - zabbix + hopefully kibana soon
