How to I determine the UNIX Agent versions via the QDB or operator console?


The AppManager database stores two module values for base UNIX Agent versions:

  • AppManagerAgent  -- Version seen in most recent Heartbeat from this system
  • UNIX -- Last Agent version discovered via Discovery_UNIX KS

These versions can be seen within the properties dialog for the UNIX system.
For most purposes, you will need to check the AppManagerAgent field for the current agent version.


Pulling an overall listing of Agent versions

To get an overall listing of the UNIX agents with their versions, you can run the following SQL queries on the QDB:

  • Last agent version seen for each UNIX system via the last heartbeat:
    • select * from version where Component = 'AppManagerAgent'

  • Agent version seen during last Discovery_UNIX:
    • select * from version where Component = 'UNIX'
