The monitored items are:

  • historical SSH login/logout
  • historical network upload and download bandwidth usage
  • which network interfaces is down
  • which server/system is down
  • historical CPU usage
  • historical RAM usage
  • see logs (systemd) or /var/log
  • 1
    Except for the last item, I'd say Monitorix is a good choice. See my answer here (and the ones I've linked from there). It's what I use – and if you're on Debian (or a derivate), I'm the maintainer of its .deb packages and the corresponding repository.

Take a look at Nagios (http://www.nagios.org/) for some of your goals. I am a sysadmin and I use it on Fedora (only for basic tasks here, but I think it's versatile and useful).
