Several good open source tools you can use are:

Zenoss- www.zenoss.com
Nagios - www.nagios.net
cacti - www.cactu,net

All three of these do a good job of monitoring servers and networking gear. All of them use SNMP to acomplish this. For networking gear i would lean more twords a combination of nagios and cacti over zenoss but zenoss has a simple to use GUI interface for configuration were nagios does not.

I have also hear of Nedi but have never tried it. It looks like it might help you out as well
