Probably +1 for RANCID unless you like to tinker. ;-) I havn't tried
RANCID myself but it comes highly recommended.

We use regular polling of variable in CISCO-CONFIG-MAN-MIB
(ccmHistoryRunningLastChanged and ccmHistoryStartupLastChanged) and
backup via OLD-CISCO-SYS-MIB::writeNet. It works very well and makes it
easy to customize.
