Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. Please let me know which newsgroup would be more appropriate if this isnt the one.
We have a number of large Cisco networks. Not all are interconnected. Mostly they are a dozen or so big networks.
Approximately 40,000-90,000 devices depending on who you ask. (By device I mean cards or chassis).
We wish to run an audit, to identify more accurately what is out there.
From the audit we wish to gather info such as:
- Number of devices
- Type of devices
- Serial Number of devices
- Age (?) of devices (eg manufacturing date or similar)
- Software version on devices
By devices I mean chassis and (if applicable) cards as well.
and so on.
The networks are in general behind a good firewall, so sweeping the full IP range should be OK in general.
The aim is to as accurately as possible sweep each of our networks to determine what we have in them. From this we will more accurately know what we have that needs supporting.
Anyone know of any software that can do this? And any large international companies that may have consultants that are able to be hired to do this?
I am not in the US, so if you recommend a specific company please make it a large international company, other than Cisco!
Also any info you have on this being done in other companies would be appreciated. Such as how long it would take etc. Assume 90,000 cards/chassis and a 20 separate networks.
Thanks for your help....its quite a task thats needed!
