Nagios is pretty much the standard for anything like this. Handily enough, they sell the sensors too. If you'd like your own app, you could always use their sensors and build your own frontend with rrdtool or something.

A web application by itself will not be able to do that. I used to work on a similar project for server monitoring. You will need some sort of a backend providing the data. The backend pulls/collects the data, the web site presents the data.

If you have a database with up-to-date monitoring data or an interface with snmp/XML you can query your good to go. Then you can write a website with php that collects the data whenever you refresh the webpage.
