    Anyone use it?

    I have found several different ones and have used a couple but here's the catch.

    I run a consultant firm and we have clients networks that we wish to audit for hardware and software. Most companies either don't like consulting firms or want to rape me like crazy for 20000 user licenses.

    So...anyone?

    That's the name of the game. When you are doing consulting, software companies aren't going to give you a break.

    If you are auditing on a scale of 20k of users then I believe your consulting fee would cover the cost of the usage of that piece of software.

    Solarwinds is the only piece of software like that, that comes to mind.

    Oh yeah I just remembered SMS I used version 2.0 years ago had to be carefull running that darn thing it bogged the network down so bad.
