How about Circonus:

It's made by the guys over at OmniTI. I've been using it for months and it's an excellent hosted monitoring and trending solution. Prices are very reasonable too. I highly recommend checking it out.

Just checked it out. It looks more like a pingdom competitor to monitor web pages load time than a serious server bottleneck level monitoring tool – Niro Aug 30 '10 at 18:57
Not at all, it goes well beyond that. It can use a Nagios-like agent on your systems to report data back to their interface of any shape and size. It's quite a powerful system. – vmfarms Aug 30 '10 at 19:44
