This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
For monitoring, I would say something like Cacti, Ganglia or Munin. And for alerts, I would use Nagios.
For spot monitoring, ntop is useful for a quick graphical overview. One could always use netstat or tcpdump if you are into the command line stuff.
