        Hi sharath
              Altiris, which HP recommends since they are teamed, is the best.

You can use HP Systems Insight Manager:
http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/hpsim/dl_windows.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

In addition it is also possible to use Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) with additionally installed HP Management Pack

See MS: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/mom/default.mspx
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/mom/catalog/catalog.aspx?kw=&vs=2005&ca=&co=HP

Also other professional monitoring software might be interresting, e.g. NetIQ

    Sirbount already suggested Insight manager, mansmanf
           Sharath I dont think you would be able to find a free one with so many features.
Software in the following link has a free edition. I hope it helps.

I 'thought' that it was included (Insight) - but it's part of our builds for several years now, so I don't know for certain any more...

I can't honestly answer that either - but the link above has it for download, so I would presume so...it was in the past (if I'm not mistaken)...
Perhaps someone else can clarify..

HP Insight Manager is free as I know, but you need a SQL server as a prerequesite. Can be done with a free MYSQL or depending on your requirements and size of your environment you maybe already have an MS SQL server that can host an additional database. Gives a little bit more possibilities and support in case of problems.
