Server inventory software


do you know any good server inventory open source products?
I want information like, server hostnames, ram, cpu, os, filesystems, volume groups, disks, adapters, installed software versions, firmware levels and so on

os: aix, solaris, linux, hpux

data should be kept in a database, web front end and history functions would be good

I can load the data directly into the db, something agent based is ok too

thanks in advance
cheers funksen

Best one is the one I wrote for IBM. But they'll never let you have it.

ZenOSS is a popular choice. If you use ServiceNow, they are touting their new discovery product. Dell's KACE might be interesting... there's a ton of products to look at and evaluate.

thank you, these are all very powerful products, unfortunately not open source and very feature heavy, was looking for something really lightweight without the whole itil implementation, impact, problem management and so on

I really really really need to rewrite the one I made and push it out (I'm an open source developer, IBM doesn't do open source, so glad I'm out of there).

How about Nagios. It might not be as lightweight as you like but it is open source. As far as i know (lucky me, i'm in a pure AIX shop) it supports all the platforms you want and you do not need to use the monitoring partif you only need an inventory service.

I hope this helps.

Nagios is primarily a monitoring tool. Of course you can (mis-)use it for an inventory.
Maybe facter from Puppet Labs is more appropriate...
