Check out tools like Nagio and Zenoss, if you want full-features 
network monitoring & management.  Check out tools like Big Brother or 
Big Sister, if you're looking for lighter-weight tools, either built 
on shell scripts or Perl programs.

Also make sure to check out the CAIDA Tools page at 
<http://www.caida.org/tools/>.  They have the best collection of 
network monitoring & measurement tools I know of.
