Physical access shouldn't be necessary.  Snmp based tools expect to work 
over the network and you can run local graphic programs remotely through 
an ssh tunnel.  If you have to use only http, you could run cacti on the 
server itself, monitoring itself - and it is one of the easier systems 
to set up.
