Hi

For a proper auditing you should use a professional product.

For my VMware infrastructures I use Veeam Reporter. It give a design and all the VMs/Hosts stats.

Also provides Storage and network stats from all of your VMware infrastructure. The same time that give all the stats, creates a design(Words, Excel, Visio) for everything VMs, hosts, Storage allocation etc.

You can download and use a trial for 30 days. Very good product.

Hope this can help

If it's for Security use the VMware vSphere Compliance Checker for vSphere
