Cisco auto mapping network

It should be fairly easy to write a perl script that will map out a cisco network architecture given access to the core switch and that all connecting devices will allow the core to telnet or ssh to them.  The command show cdp neighbor detail will give you all the info you need.  The ip address, device name, and the port that the connecting device is on.  Then just throw all of those ips on a queue telnet or ssh to them and repeat show cdp neighbor detail on each device making a list of the devices you have already connected to so that you don’t get caught in a loop.  You will also have to query the device to see if it is Cat OS or IOS.  Shouldn’t be too hard with expect and perl.  I will put this on my someday maybe list.
