I would look at and recommend VMware vSphere Operations Manager.

http://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-operations.html

It's an appliance, you can import, leave running for two weeks, and then review reports, and it can be done for free, as it runs in evaluation mode for 60 days.

Advantage of vRops, is it uses the data already collected in the vCenter Server database, if you are a VMware Partner, there are other internal Assessment Tools that can be used, and then you have Veeam One and Dell Quest Foglight products.
