These days I played a little bit around with Nagios, which is able to check several hosts and services. With the support of a free vServer of EUserv I did a setup of such a system.

My highlight is that a downtime of a service will notify me via Twitter. Furthermore the Gentoo Nagios guide helped my very much. There exist several Nagios plugins to check ssh, jabber, irc and other tcp ports and many other things to monitor.

If somebody knows a free Nagios infrastructure I'll be interested in this. :-)
