Need to force Inventory delta on clients.

Need to run a Hardware and Software inventory on a few collections.  I know I can force it to run out of schedule with a script, but I don't want to bring the server to its knees running a full inventory on the clients.  

Is there a script out there that will only perform a delta inventory for hardware/software together?

The client contains the history of it's hardware and software inventory.  If you initialise a hardware or software inventory via the Control Panel applet com object (as per the attached script code from the ConfigMgr SDK), the clients will only send the delta invnetory information (given they have already performed a full inventory at some stage)

Sub RunSoftwareInventory()
 
    ' Set the required variables.
    actionNameToRun = "Software Inventory Collection Cycle"
 
    ' Create the CPAppletMgr instance.
    Dim controlPanelAppletManager
    Set controlPanelAppletManager = CreateObject("CPApplet.CPAppletMgr")
 
    ' Get the available client actions.
    Dim clientActions
    Set clientActions = controlPanelAppletManager.GetClientActions()
 
    ' Loop through the available client actions. Run the matching client action when it is found.
    Dim clientAction
    For Each clientAction In clientActions
        If clientAction.Name = actionNameToRun Then
            clientAction.PerformAction  
        End If
    Next
    
    wscript.echo "Ran: " & actionNameToRun
 
End Sub
