	Hi Brandon,

	Maybe RT (already mentioned) could do the trick -- it's a matter of
	choosing how you will set up the system, i.e.: number of queues, custom
	fields, etc...

	Since it's ticket centric, it really doesn't matter how many servers
	or assets you have.

	That's not really dependent on the ticket system.  I've done this
	with Trac and RT: it's more a matter of whether the NMS platform
	allows triggers (arbitrary actions) to be tied to events, and also
	in which cases.  It's trivial with Nagios to open tickets on down
	or unreachable events.  You could even instrument the script to
	update the ticket (never close a ticket automatically!) every time
	a new event related to this equipment took place.

	You mean http://www.glpi-project.org/ -- I've heard it should be quite
	complicated to setup, but have no first hand experience myself.
