Default Managing a small in-house DC


I am in the process of building few utilities for a in-house DC setup consisting of few servers of varoious types ( in service, brand and os's). The total number of servers is 25, and all of them are for internal use only, so nothing to with customer or billing management.

Some things that I have already built are:
  • Service monitoring, including response time monitoring for few services like http, DB(Oracle and MS-SQL) connection, Email Server etc.
  • Physical Server availability through Ping response times.
  • Server monitoring for few critical items like Processor Memory and bandwidth Usage.
  • Alerts to admin groups in case of problem

What else can be added to this small selection? Please keep in mind that it is a small in-house dc facility, and the software is for the benefit of admins only. If possible, please stick to software management utilities only, since I cannot do anything about the hardware or the infrastructure setup of the dc.
