    That would depend on the specific OS involved.

    How would you get this information from the file system, or perhaps a catalog of installed software on the system? Is there a way to get this info from the command line?

    If there is a file you can pull the same information out of with relevance that the command is getting it from, that would be an option.

     

    Another option is to have an open action that would output the output of the "rpm -qa" command to a file on a daily or weekly basis, then report on the contents of the output in an analysis.
