Nagios is your best bet. Groundwork Opensource has an excellent free
implementation that has all of the features you specified.

Subject: Port Monitoring Software

Dear All,

I have been assigned the task to recommend a freeware / low value
purchase software for our helpdesk to monitor tcp port status & server
availability. Can anyone recommend a simple & efficient product that can
run on Windows XP / 2003. Basic requirements would be -

1. To check the ping status
2. Check whether particular TCP ports are responding
3. Have a dashboard to give a quick representation
4. Must have an smtp engine to alert via emails

I am aware of Big Brother, just wanted to check if anyone could vouch
for a better software.

Thanks,
Tinu Koshy

PS: If you know of a Linux based software, please do suggest that too.
