Server Monitoring

Hi all,

    Is anyone out there using Argus to monitor servers?  I'm looking to 
monitor the CPU and Hard Drive space on the servers ( and maybe other 
stuff ), but I'm not sure how to do this with Argus.  I started looking 
into using net-snmp, but I'm a little overwhelmed with the config for 
this.  In addition, it looks to only monitor load average, and not cpu.

    Is SNMP the only way to do this, or is there something easier?
