Mom will help you monitor servers, if you would like to monitor network and servers then as Matthew suggested you can go ahed with HP open view or netcool. But you can go for this tools if do not have any constrain on price.

or you can try Cisco works which will manage only cisco devices.

or can go for whats up gold it is a small utility which can only be used for monitoring. not managing.
