Can the Linux Agent monitor when updates to packages, such as security updates, are available

Hey guys,

We're looking to begin monitoring when updates for Linux packages are made available.

Is this something the Linux agent can provide, maybe with a separate integration? Would rather this than have to setup another tool such as SpaceWalk or RHEL Satellite.

In theory if you could write a script to check for those updates (or potentially several of them) you could probably cook something up, but it would be something totally something DIY you would have to create, and at that point why house it inside SolarWinds at all instead of a more typical and more supported purpose built platform?
