Compare installed version of packages across a set of nodes
Identify nodes vulnerable to bug or security problems known to certain package versions
Identify nodes where a package is installed or not installed
Packages database entries not refreshed for more than 24 hours will have its update date highlighted red. Information for such a package should not be trusted.
The toolbox of the nodes view proposes a tool to highlight package differences between selected nodes.
