How to get Switch information connected to the network ?

People,

I'm managing multiple Office and Building sites across different region in Asia Pacific, each sites has its own Subnet. So how can I get the network switch information (Name, Vendor, type, IP address and Model) for hardware audit purpose ?

Mostly they are running HpProcurve but some sites running different brand. Is there any software that can scan the whole subnet 192.168.0.0/16 for any switches ?

Thanks.

You need an SNMP management tool such as "The Dude"  (yes, that's what it's called)

We use Cacti for autodiscovery, namely the nice mactrack can help you dig up switches without SNMP from their MAC addresses.
