We use Paessler PRTG for some Linux boxes. They have a free trial. Install is a snap and discovery is simple. Support is great as well, even during the trial. Paessler

There is a cloud-based tool SeaLion to record output of customizable commands at regular intervals. Very handy and useful free tool.

What kind of monitoring do you need? Will web-interface be enough for you?

If so you can install Zabbix, Nagios, or Monit on your server. You can check how to configure the Monit on your server here for example.

If you need to have the program on your Windows PC you can try to use TheDude program. It will allow you to monitor all SNMP data on your server, check it with ping and such a checks. And it's free.
