Try the Aten CN6000... They can be purchased for less than $500... They work
GREAT, and can be attached to a KVM switch to cascade for multiple servers.

The simplest thing you can do is to make sure you are logging the console
messages.  I set all remote servers to log the actual console output to a
separate log file in /etc/syslog.conf adding the line:
console.info                                    /var/log/console.log

and adding a line to /etc/newsyslog.conf to rotate the logs:
/var/log/console.log                    600  5     100  *     J
