vCenter best practices tools

Are there any useful free tools to audit the configuration of vCenter? I no there is the vsphere compliance checker for the actual hosts, just wondered if theres anything for the configuration of the actual vcenter, and where current configurations defer from best practice guides.

In terms of esxi hosts, are there any other useful free audit/configuration tools above and beyond vsphere compliance checker and the vcheck script?

Not really, if you are serious about Audits, you would purchase vCenter Operations Manager.
