Asking if there are an open source or paid software opens the floodgates. Yes, there are loads of packages in both categories and some in-between. IBM Tivoli, BMC Patrol, HP OpenView, Nagios, Munin, Cacti, the list is huge.

What platform do you want to monitor, what platform do you want it to run on, how many endpoints, these questions will drive your choice.

Do you want it for alerting, or data gathering, or long term trending, or all of those.

You'll need to do a lot more reading around or specify much more specific requirements for a good answer.

Here's some various links to Wikipedia.
