Pingmon is a simple network monitor written in Perl. It is a console based program with a colour interface (can be switched to black & white) which means it can easily be used from a remote machine. You can configure which hosts to monitor, which hosts to ignore and which hosts cause a log entry if they go down. Scan speeds can be completely configured to control network traffic. It also supports the use of ICMP (ping request), TCP (echo port) and UDP (echo port) monitoring. It's been tested on Linux, Solaris and IRIX but likely works under any OS with a reasonable perl implementation and a terminal supporting ANSI.
