We use nagios too, to monitor in/out queues, load avg, disk space, etc, 
and most importantly, to notify if something is out of acceptable range.
Nagios plugins are pretty simple. It looks like Munin makes nice graphs. 
Graphs are great to look at historical performance if something does go 
wrong - to see how long it had really been a problem before anyone 
noticed. I don't tend to look at them very often otherwise though.
