Server/Website Watchdog software

Can anybody recommend SW that "watches" your server and/or website and notifies you when it is down?  Could be somethign I load on my Linux servers, OR just a Mac or Windows app that keeps looking at my websites & notifying me if the don't ping.

Nagios is a good option for any size network.

Another option is a free on-line service from a company called mon.itor.us (http://mon.itor.us/).

I recommend taking a look at Nagios (www.nagios.org), a network/services monitoring and reporting open source platform. It can be used to monitor Linux, UNIX, Windows, Mac/OS X, etc.

Thx - Would this be suitable for me given that my needs are simple, I have 1 Mac & 1 Windows Machine & 2 websites online ... so not really a big I.T. Network but rather for home use to know if either of my 2 websites goes offline ...

I recommend the dotcom-monitor.com service.
It is not a free service, although they give out one free web site monitor.
used them extensively :)
