I've been able to use perl to sort of reverse document a server, basically determine what is running on the server, open ports, needed files and services, etc. However, I need to do this on a much larger scale, looking at a very large internal network. I need to be able to figure out what's running on thousands of servers, and which applications depend on each other. Basically I'm looking to almost track or follow data within the network. Is there anything out there, whether Perl coded or not that can help me with this task?
Any wild goose chase lead would be appreciated, right now my best bet is just asking people, and most have no idea how their application works, just that it does.
