One such example would be MCI's "pollem", available at
ftp://ftp.mci.net/outgoing/pollem

"pollem" is a perl script that will log into a Cisco, pull
a copy of the on-line config, and compare it with a previously
pulled config (for things like network audits, etc).  It
can be changed to execute any command that the logged in user
has privledge for.
