There's also opennms - http://www.opennms.org.  It lets you set up 
dashboard views that only display a subset of the nodes for a certain 
login but I don't think you can limit what someone with write access can 
configure.  It has a nice feature of being able to send notifications to 
an xmpp (jabber) group conference as well as the usual mechanisms.
