I've used Nagios and 'it just works'. The database checks can be easily customised and individual databases can be configured together as a single (or more than one) service group. These service groups them appear on the 'service groups' page and show up in pink (critical) yellow (warning) white (ok) and (unknown).

Ok, these are simple HTML tables, but you do get a one stop overview of all your databases. (and/or web servers, weblogic, networks stuff, firewalls, dns, etc etc etc) rather than 'genuine graphics' as such, but version 3 is coming soon and might have better eye candy. I used version 2.x.

You can use it toi check the status of your oracle names servers and services too - very useful.

HTH Cheers,
