You've gotten some pretty good responses, so far, but I wanted to throw
something else out at you.

If you have an X manager on the workstation from which you want to monitor
the servers, you can still run the x based tools, remotely.

If your workstation is a Linux system, you're probably already running X. 
If it's a Windows system, I recommend xming...it's lightweight, and I've
run many an X app, remotely, using it.
