We are using Nagios to monitor our servers as well (most of them are Dell's PE 
1950 or PE R610). Nagios NRPE can communicate with OMSA and we are monitoring 
all of the critical parts this way. Nagios is sending us critical errors via 
GSM modems and provides us with the alert status summary page for the hotline
