Hi David,

We use Big Brother:

To monitor our servers. We're extremely happy with the product, and on 
a brief examination it appears that it does in fact do reporting, 
specifically to see whether or not service commitments and agreements 
are being met. Sounds like it'll fit the bill?

Anyway. Good luck!
