In a word, Nagios.

It can be configured to send an alert when a service goes down, then repeatedly every n minutes and finally, an un-alert when the service comes back up. Alternatively, it can be configured to alert once on detection of the problem and again when it comes back up.

When monitoring here, I get alerted every half hour until fixed. That's how we like it, so we have turned off the alerting once option. In addition, we can also set a time period in which no alerts should be sent out.

Obviously, the 'eye candy' screen giving an overview of the system shows all problems all the time.
