I want to monitor multiple servers remotely for things like disk usage, process usuage.

Send me alerts by email or let me view them at a glance.

Free if possible or cheap as possible, disk usage is the main one really.

I have used Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/) on FreeBSD boxes.  It allows you to monitor disk space, network performance and the like.  It will send you an alert when a trigger level is reached.  For historical reporting I am currently using Munin (http://munin-monitoring.org/) and MRTG (http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/) depending on the complexity.

Munin can talk to most SNMP devices.

Hope this helps

Webmin on Windows ==> http://www.webmin.com/windows.html
Munin monitoring Windows ==> http://munin-monitoring.org/wiki/HowToMonitorWindows

Should work OK.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

what do you mean with "remotely" -> on what server/client/win/linux should this monitoring-system run on?

Have you heard of houndog? I'd just like to view multiple servers disk usage that I have out there so I can see at a glance what people are using, houndog is quite expensive and has too much information I'd just like something simple.
