There used to be a very nice tool called "cheops" & "cheops-ng" back in
the day. I really don't know what happened to that project, just go
google it..

Cheops (http://marko.marko.net/cheops/) is no longer maintained and might need some changes to make it compile with newer libraries (ucd-snmp related mostly) or to compile with newer gcc versions. I've been fixing some of these bugs in the Debian version (patches and all available at http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/cheops). Its functionality now is also very limited (uses 'queso' for OS detection for example)

Cheops-ng, however, is being maintained, uses nmap for OS detection and should be, overall, much better than Cheops. For more info see http://cheops-ng.sourceforge.net/ and http://sourceforge.net/projects/cheops-ng/
