What'sUp gold is pretty good, but if you are looking for decent amount of
functionality at a relatively low price, I think Intermapper is decent.  It
can be used for mapping and monitoring the network as well as setting up
probes to verify certain services/servers are up and available.

The one thing that seems to be a big hurdle with running it is that it
requires a Macintosh to run.   Sometimes that might go against a companies
OS platform, or just plain religion.

If you have a Windows box handy, What'sUp is nice and basic.

The old version, not this new "Gold" thing that they charge 8 billion
dollars a copy for.
