Most network monitoring based on SNMP protocol, if your device support SNMP agent you can find a lot of network monitoring software.
On unix you can use MRTG, on win32 you can use SNMPc or WhatsUp from IpSwitch.

Based upon the areas you want to monitor, there is a product called NT Manage. This product will allow you to monitor the network interface(s) and the services running on the managed server. It will also attempt to restart a service if you so desire. It will do pretty much want you want it to do and is web based.

I'm a big fan of MRTG. It's an open source GPL implementation that provides a Web interface and can be set up to monitor any parameter that can be supplied by an SNMP agent, whether that parameter occurs on a server, router or other network device. It's available on both the Linux and NT platforms and supplies a Web-based interface.

In regards to item #4, I'm assuming that you want key people to be notified when there are significant changes. This could be accomplished by setting SNMP traps and having them call an e-mail program such as MAPISEND or by using other programs such as What'sUp Gold or BigBrother.

I've found a Web site that I think provides an excellent starting point for network monitoring. It's at www.wtcs.org/snmp4tpc and has all sorts of links to both freeware and commercial network monitoring tools.

I like winternals (www.winternals.com) They offer a wide variety of monitoring programs, along with crash recovery products that have saved my hide more than once!
