Cacti with the Monitor, Nectar plugins will accomplish what you are asking and is relatively simple to setup, but I'd throw in Phpweathermap, Quicktree, and Thold for giggles, additional monitoring and the ooshiney factor. Its fairly intuitive, but in large installations you will want to look at the autom8 plugin to merely scan your subnets and add devices it finds per the rules you define.
