If your machines have SNMP stacks (as all real machines should), then you
could use SNMPerl and/or tkined to come up with a simple monitoring system.

The routers almost definitely should be snmp monitorable. As for the
workstations, Digital Unix and AIX come with minimal SNMP stacks, and
Linux comes with a very good derrivative of the CMU stack. There is one
for FreeBSD also, done at UC-Davis. For other boxes, you'll probably
have to buy them.
