Very true. One product (not OSS, somewhat pricey) we've had great luck with
is SolarWinds Netmonitor. I can install it and point it at all of our
equipment in under a couple of hours. When you want to monitor a server, you
just need an SNMP service running on it, point Netmonitor at the IP of the
box, and it'll ask you what you'd like to monitor (disk, CPU, memory, etc).
Works great with our Cisco and HP networking gear as well.
