Open Source Monitoring Software

Ever heard of Hyperic (http://www.hyperic.com/)? Well, I would not be surprised if you haven't. I stumbled across this free and easy to use software a few days ago when I was searching a for a monitoring software to monitor my JBoss and Tomcat servers.
This software is able to monitor nearly everything (Application Servers, Databases, Servers, Networks, etc.) and comes free of charge. It's well designed using a JBoss Application server and written entirely in Java.
All you have to do is to install the small agent on the machine you want to monitor and install the server software to gather all informations. The GUI is completely available as a web frontend so every administrator in your company's internet can monitor the servers without installing additional software on their clients.
