    You could use Etherape with a network discovery tool like Nmap. Etherape
    will record the hosts visually via the generated traffic generated by
    Nmap, but the topology won't be correct I don't think. Etherape will
    detected chatty nodes between each other, but all the nodes discovered
    via the Nmap traffic will just make a star map - but I could be wrong.
    Worth a try...
