Are you looking for examples of already-written scripts, or suggestions of things that you might like to write a script to monitor?

When it comes to my servers, I like to keep tabs on the following:
-drive saturation (how much of the drive is in use versus still free space)
-available services
-is Apache running on the web server?
-is MySQL running on the database server?
-CPU usage (is an app or service pegging the cpu at 100%)
-available memory (is the swap file being used or is there enough RAM)
-network usage
You know, the basics need to be covered. I rely on logs for user login information and don't really need a separate monitor for that. The most important thing (IMHO) to monitor is the "available services." If my web-server stops responding or has problems, I need to know immediately. So much so that I will have the monitor send me a text message letting me know of the problem if the server doesn't recover on its own after 30 seconds.

Just my $.02
