    Depends what you are trying to accomplish.
    If you are trying to make sure you keep up to date, monitor the end of life, end of sale, warranties, that type of stuff.
    If you are trying to make sure that you have enough bandwidth monnitor usage.
    If you are trying to make sure it is working properly monitor switch ports for errors.
    You could also audit Internet usage, server usage, file storage to make sure you have enough, and how fast you are filling it up.
    you can also audit software licences purchased and in use.....
