Beardog,
Just as the expert suggested, Nagios is one of the more popular opensource software tools.

However, I just want to add: there are many low cost solutions out there, depending on what your end game is.
Nagios is very powerful and I believe free for small environments.
PRTG is another powerful tool, I believe they have a free version but their pricing is very fair for small environments.
Solarwinds offers a reliable product and many add ons, including tools that can hook directly into the hypervisor for infrastructure data. That data can provide significant value if you can make use of it.

It all depends on if you plan on growing the environment or have additional needs beyond this single hypervisor and machines.

Here are a couple of articles. Take note that Nagios makes the list in both.

http://www.gfi.com/blog/the-top-20-free-network-monitoring-and-analysis-tools-for-sys-admins/

Not to sound like I am drinking the Nagios Kool-Aid, but there is one last really nice item about Nagios. All the plug-ins and community contributions. You will be hard pressed to find something that someone has not already tried and posted a solution for with Nagios.

I hope this helps,
Matt
