For managing my "network" of servers(assuming what you mean since
your posting to a CentOS list and not a network equipment list),
I use CFengine to manage them(www.cfengine.org). Puppet(t?) is also
increasing in popularity as well(don't know the web site and doing
a google search didn't come up with anything obvious).

For a ticketing system I suggest Request Tracker(RT)

For monitoring I use a combination of an extremely customized
cacti[collects 10+ million points a day](www.cacti.net) and

For documentation I highly recommend confluence
