Munin is actually a quite simple and extendable framework for
centralized infrastructure monitoring, almost trivial to configure
(although you can come up with some pretty involved/complicated
setups, but for most situations it is quite trivial). It does not
support alerting, only monitoring and (offline, static,
cron-based) graphing.

It is by far not a replacement for netstat - it uses netstat as a
source for many of its queries.
