We have used metalan from hammersoftware its pretty good, we also have
spent a lot of time for several clients using spiceworks the community and
dev on it keeps getting better and supports multiple remote sites now so
its getting to be really applicable.

Tim,
  Haven't spoken in a bit, been traveling and the like. We've had many
conversations about tools like 'puppet', 'chef', PowerShell 'DSC', and now
Ansible. I would say that if you have already deployed one of these tools
you can use that as your CMDB source. For example if you had puppet
enterprise you would have a CMDB already, or if you had Puppet OpenSource
you could use PuppetDB to start building your own CMDB. PuppetDB (
http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/latest/configure.html) can use HSQLDB
or PostgreSQL as its datastore. You might be able to use some simple
relational database mappings to help you along. Its not out of the box, but
I like scale. I know those tools scale. LanSweeper and CMDB will only scale
if the people scale. They are not designed to elastically grow in dynamic
environments. Just things to think about as devices come on and leave the
network.

if you are interested in using Ansible:
http://docs.ansible.com/intro_inventory.html and
http://docs.ansible.com/intro_dynamic_inventory.html and
http://docs.ansible.com/developing_inventory.html

The limit is what you make of it.  Happy to help :)

I use the paid version of Lansweeper. It provides copious amounts of data
and reporting, depending on the your level of network access (AD, SNMP,
SSH, etc.). It will do everything you listed and much more.

Thank you!
