Hi Tim,

I can't offer a good comparison between the choices available (there are
many).  But I want to throw in 'monit' as a choice worth considering (  It's really quick to setup and quite capable.
 Nagios can be more powerful, which would take a bit more setup.  So if
your situation calls for a simple solution, monit may be a good choice.
