Cross-platform system management tools

An expert recommends a cross-platform open source tool for systems management.

Can you recommend some cross-platform open source systems managment tools for an IT shop that uses Windows and Linux?

Probably the best-known is Nagios. I would start there to determine if it fits the bill. If it doesn't, check the Nagios forums -- there will probably be discussions of other management tools there that will point you to more candidates.
