Take a look at sysmon that Jared Mauch wrote... it kicks ass.  While
it cannot doo all the checks you are looking for, you may be able
to have it suit your needs.

That does multiple system checks, blah blah blah.

MRTG is great for utilization and misc statistics like temp,
outgoing mail, portmaster users, bandwidth, etc.  It uses
SNMP so anything that uses SNMP can be polled.

Both work well on FreeBSD up to 3.0-current as well as Solaris 2.x
