None of these necessarily get to your ideal state, but at least get you 
going wrt discovery for semi-dynamic documentation.

- have not used, but has been around the block.

- have used for rudimentary discovery
- have not beat on it extensively

- used at previous $dayjob
- decent integration/exports for other common monitoring or network 
   management tools

/r/networking may have more.

At the very least they should get you going without excessive setup time 
while you eval whether they fit the bill or you want something more
