    I highly recommend Nagios. It's free and works great:

    Just make a shell script
    Get it to nc or telnet to port 80, go a GET request on a certain page, compare it to what it should say, and if there's a difference to log and e-mail it.

    I second that motion. I'm yet to see anything that trumps nagios.

    I've been using http://www.zabbix.com/ for monitoring. I was never impressed with Nagios, and Zabbix gives you history and trending of monitors you setup.

    It looks like Nagios has a history option? Can anyone confirm?

    I second that motion; Zabbix is the only monitoring software I've used that worked as soon as it was installed, and is remarkably configurable.

    Thye're in the process of moving hosts for the site. Looks like they're up now.

    The Good thing about Zabbix is its powerful web interface to manage hosts, triggers, and actions.
    Nagios, you need to shell everytime through configuration files to add hosts and services to be monitored.

    However, if you have some spare time, you may instead extend Nagios.
