Searching for a System Documentation Management System

I am in need of a documentation system I can use to collect and store information on servers, systems, etc.  Wiki pages of some sort tend to work fine for this type of information, but what if I wanted to do some reporting?  I can’t easily generate a report showing the list of current vendors that have systems on our network, or a list of ip addresses being used currently, etc.

Would like it to document a growing list of variables for each system, as well as some general technical notes, troubleshooting information, etc.

I don’t need to automatically generate the information - I just need a place to put it.  Thought about Confluence, but I am unsure if it is exactly what I am looking for.  We have a ton of resources for this (sharepoint, system center, etc.) but I don’t want to roll my own solution - something must already exist that I am just overlooking.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Updates?

codefusion.org has been my personal domain for my e-mail for going on 15 years now.  At times, I attempt to utilize it for other things, but mostly that has been an exercise in futility.  

Well, I have decided to start yet-another-weblog on codefusion.org, this time with tumblr running the backend.

We will see how things turn out.  Until then.
