No worldwide standards I assume but Oracle does have some standard tools whose output they require for official support.

Oracle (former SUN) Explorer's manual is here:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17559_01/em.111/e21076/toc.htm
I *think* it includes things like SunCluster and storage

As for storages and tape libraries, most of them have web interfaces in addition to command line and it should be self-explanatory.

As for Linux servers; well this is really a colourful stuff; depending on what distribution you are talking about

Oracle RDBMS problems are best addressed using ADR (Automatic Diagnostic Repository). An introduction can be found here:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28319/adrci.htm

All that said, we have our private tool for checking things like that, a set of scripts organised in a modular fashion (not unlike Oracle Explorer). Module groups include:
- All *nix nodes
- All Linux nodes
- Primary Application Servers
- All application servers
- Oracle Database servers
- Backup clients
- Plus separate groups for each major application

Alas, it's confidential so I can't provide you the tool itself :) but I do encourage you to develop one to your liking, using the scripting(?) language of your preference. It took me 3 weeks to create the first (working and useful) version from zero and we've been extending and using it for 7+ years now so it's worth the effort.
