If you have a very large sack of money, BMC Patrol is a very good tool, and
CA Unicenter also does this.  Fundi are the local BMC distributor.

I don't know of any open source tools that are as complete as these, if
anyone knows I would be very interested.  There is a package called EMU on
Freshmeat that is aimed at event monitoring and alerting, but I don't know
how complete it is.  There might always be something else there closer to
what you want.

A basic SNMP tool _might_ do what you want, but if you want to access it via
a browser you might have to use PHP scripts to query the SNMP daemon on the
relevant server.  That's if your Netware and NT boxes use SNMP.
