Just like the title. For example, I would like software that I can install on my linux (ubuntu desktop/server) to monitor my windows boxes for disk thresholds and cpu or memory spikes and alerts me via email. Is there anything out there in freeware land that does this? Thanks!

I like to use Cacti. There is a distro called CactiEZ that I run in a VM to monitor all my network equipment and servers via SNMP. You have to install SNMP and configure it on your Windows servers. I currently only monitor disk space.

Google CactiEZ.

I'm late to the party here, but I use nagios (with nsclient++ installed on the server side) to monitor about 50 windows servers. It does the job quite well.

Zenoss (http://www.zenoss.com) is an open-source, enterprise-grade Network Management System with clientless monitoring of both Linux and Windows machines. With each new release, this product is definitely getting better.

Thanks but I was asking for freeware. This is freeware?

All mentioned above I believe are free or have a community version.

Zennoss has a community version on their download page... "Recommended for do-it-yourselfers who are comfortable deploying, extending & supporting enterprise software without professional support."

Zabbix is probably the easiest of the lot to configure and get to work:
