To check a website's availability there is Pingdom (and many others). I'm looking for a similar service (online/web-based, easy to use with notifications) that monitors servers a bit more in detail. Things like Disk Space, Windows Services running, etc....

I am happy to install an agent on the box to facilitate that, but don't want to run the monitoring server as well.

On the inexpensive side we have used ServersAlive for years.

Don't you need to install the server with this product as well? I'm looking for a solution that doesn't require me running a monitoring server as well. – Khash Apr 8 '10 at 14:53
