Solar Winds has some nice tools for this when it comes to discovery...
however I have found that just about any of the tools out there that do
this have one flaw or another. You just need to try a few out that
people mention here and see which one you like best.
Most of them have evaluation options.

Subject: Discovering network topology
I was wondering if there were special ways to discover networks
topologies / mapping networks. Are there particular tools or methods I
should be aware of ? The few tools I tried only gave me approximative
results. However I think nmap + the standard unix tools can do a good
of the job.
Moreover, what are the differences between discovering an
network from the inside, and from the outside ?
I mean, what are the best practices to discover network equipments,
VPNs, etc? I know that traceroute can be a good starting point, but are
there some other tools and techniques I should know ?
