It depends on what you want to monitor and how you want to monitor it.

You can probably tunnel snmp via ssh. I'm pretty sure you can tunnel Big Brother status messages via ssh. Then there's things like JMX and Unicenter, etc. etc. etc.

I like to suggest vnc4server, which is easy to use:
Virtual network computing server software
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote
display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment
not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the
Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.

This is nice, if the user on the other side shall see, what you're doing on his machine.

But the normal Xserver is - surprise - a server.

allows you to connect to a foreign host, and start a graphical program on the remote machine, which is displayed on your local machine (not visible on the remote machines monitor).
You might have to fiddle around with the Xauth, and I can't tell you what to do exactly - it's too long ago I used it.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
