Thank you to all.

The following are recommended by those who replied:

orcaware (
setoolkit (
rrdtool (
sarge  (
ganglia (

of all, I think sarge and ganglia is the (at least suit my needs) best
of all, they're free but can do better than the commercial ones.

sarge rocks! very simple, straightforward, easy to install, exactly what
SME sysads will want. I prefer this one.

the best I think is ganglia, good clustering, portable, nice web
interface and best fitted for large nodes. A bit complicated than sarge,
but if you have volume of computers to monitor, this one will work well.

thanks again!
