RT doesn't monitor anything, so it doesn't really have the necessary data to
create availability reports.  Xymon's web site is
http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/  (it still says hobbit monitor all over
it, but they've changed the name due to legal issues).

As far as integration, it would be quite simple to have xymon fire an alert
to the email address for a queue, thereby automatically creating a ticket
during an alarm event, something I plan on doing here.  But the availability
report would still only be available through xymon, not through RT.  That is
not RT's purpose.
