Re: Suggestions for remote server monitoring

What software would people recommend for remotely monitoring a server? I'm not talking about intrustion detection and whatnot, just keeping an eye on things like CPU load, memory, bandwidth usage, etc. Bonus points if it uses something like RRD--graphs and charts are not just pretty eyecandy for me.

If you want to monitor resources on a remote system, try cacti. It has great graphing capability using RRD. One of my favorite features is being able to highlight a section of your graph and have it draw a new graph to zoom in on the area of concern.
