I've used almost all of the tools on that list at one time or another.
A list of my favorites (sniffer-type tools) would include:
ntop -- great at getting a good overall picture (top-talkers, etc)

dsniff -- for monitoring traffic and capturing passwords when necessary
tcpdump -- I use this most often. Great for quick, down-n-dirty sniffs.
