I've always used snmpd on all the nodes which report to a VM that has cacti
running to provide my graphing and historical data. Then I have a zenoss VM
to monitor the VM's running on all those nodes.

On the node's
apt-get install snmpd
edit /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf to your liking
start up snmpd

Then for zenoss you can just scan your network and it will find the hosts.
Cacti does have discovery capabilities with plugins however not nearly as
easy to use


Hope this is helpful
