It's also a good idea to run these types of checks during the lifetime of the system as there's always some consistency creep as hardware gets replaced.

Right now it's just a text-file but making some nicer scripts and postprocessing for the output might happen as well at some point. All the examples are very HP oriented as well at this point.

Have you looked at Intel Cluster Checker <https://clusterready.intel.com/intel-cluster-checker-version-3/>? It seems to be trying to do a lot of what you are also aiming at.
It doesn’t seem to be free (though it is bundled with some of the Parallel Studio products). 
I’d have hoped that there’d be a version at OpenHPC, but I couldn’t see one.

(Full Dicslosure: As you know, I work for Intel, though not on Cluster Checker…)
