Need to scan local network time to time to monitor possible changes in MAC-IP-username combination.

Normally do it in several stages using nmap, pstools and other suitable tools, but am looking for one-shop solution to consolidate scanning results into database.

It would be good if the same software could track assets, both hardware and software.

This is similar to some other questions, Look at Spiceworks, it does inventory management by scanning the network and you can run some reports and setup alerts, it also posts changes that have occured. It does handle software and hardware inventory. I find it useful sine my network is spread over 28 sites
