There are some commercial config management products that provide similar..
Use search engines with keywords such as router / network
configuration and auditing tools.
Configuration and change management is a common problem, and CM
tools for pulling, archiving, and comparing network device
configurations to detect changes
and anomolies, so there are _plenty_ of options.
Some routers provide options for remote SCP or FTP access, then it's
just a matter
of using your favorite mass download tool.
Check your device documentation.
A popular router brand also recently had an archive function added
not too long ago.
That lets you auto-scp new configs with something simple like....
path scp://blahblah:[email protected]
