I use bigsister, which is in the ports. Bigsister trys to use snmp and to
be non-invasive. However, any monitoring comes with some overhead.
On the good side bigsister is cross-platform and can be used on Windows
servers as well as FreeBSD (and other 'NIXs too.) Bigsister can be
configured on a server by server basis for what you want to monitor, to
limit any overheard you can. You can also configure bigsister to store the
data in a database such as mysql for more detailed analysis.
Hope this helps,
