munin for local tests, nagios for the network ones.  There is some overlap
- munin can do network tests, but it seems they are best suited in those
realms, at least so far.  munin lacks the ability to directly alert an
admin of a problem (although it can alert via nagios).  nagios lacks
decent graphing tools, while munin makes pretty RRD-graphs.
