IP Address Management Tool

One of our engineers has started playing with dcTrack from Raritan; he quite
likes it so far.  It primarily manages information about data centers, like
power draw, physical layout, and cable connections.  It also provides a
change management system tied to power / cabling requirements.  In addition
to all of that, it will also manage IP addresses. :)

It is neither open source nor freely available software.

It may be (okay, it's likely to be) overkill for your environment.  Then
again, if a spreadsheet isn't cutting the mustard, you may have other needs
along with IP address management.

Hope this helps,
