Can anyone recommend a good open-source inventory-agent, which would help enumerate both software and hardware on Linux servers?

You may have a look at OCS Inventory. I don't use the agent on linux/*nix platforms but if it behaves like in windows that's a great solution.

EDIT: It is possible to use it in conjunction with GLPI as they can share inventory datas, this setup provides a incident tracking system based on the inventory provided by OCS.

I use OCS Inventory as a stand-alone for hardware inventorying on Linux platforms. – David Mackintosh Jan 5 '10 at 17:42
