For some reason I vaguely recall there being an equivalent of Spiceworks for Ubuntu. I had it running on an old server that crashed and now I can't remember the name. Any thoughts?

Based on the description of SpiceWorks, OpenNMS sounds a bit similar.

And Wikipedia has a longer list of systems management systems.

Of course, SpiceWorks should work on Ubuntu too.

I think what you mean by "work on Ubuntu too" is that it will scan a Ubuntu box using SSH. The actual software itself has to run on a Windows machine (you can just use a VM if you like). Btw, I'm the community manager over at Spiceworks, for full disclosure :)
