Are you looking for management software or monitoring software? I'm thinking the latter. For that I can advice Nagios or if you don't feel at ease with the CLI, then you could use GroundWork Community Edition which is build around Nagios and is very easy to setup and use.

Kind regards,

what do you mean by manage and monitor for these, hope both are similar meanings.
watch the cpu,memory,network card in/out speed, overload etc, any warning.
As EricTRA said nagios or openNMS,MRTG,cacti etc.
MRTG and cacti useful for graphing
