Ksysguard can connect to hosts via ssh, rsh or a command you provide yourself. 
Part of kdeadmin package. Various things can be monitored, including but not 
limited to diskspace, process tables, logfiles and system load.

Unfortunately it doesn't do well with passwords, so use a passwordless pubkey 
scheme for ssh.

It takes a bit to get used to the interface, but it's highly customizable once 
you get the hang of it.
