I saw it as an example for a system that offers the possibility to both,
view and alter, the system and package configuration of several hosts. I
don't know if they did it via SNMP but it could be made for Debian this way.

In this thread I really meant centralized package administration and not I/O
or CPU monitoring, although the latter could, of course, nicely be
integrated into the centralized management GUI. Maybe add a wiki to each
Host, too, to get a nice changelog and system description... *dreaming* :)
