Hello there,

You might want to try this monitor out. Very good solution. It is free for 2 hosts but if you would like more there is a very small fee.

I just set up Zenoss for the same purpose and I'm thrilled with it so far.

There is already a pre-defined "ping-group", so you just put your devices (manually added or automaticly discovered) into this group and set up the timers.

Zenoss is only available for linux, but you can get a pre-made vmware image with zenoss included which you can run with the free vmware player.
