The following list specifies which software products should be discovered and reported by SysInfo™ in addition to all products registered with the native OS software registry.
Table 4.1. Software Product Specific Supported Products
|Product Vendor||Product Name||Must Be Running?||Requires Root?||Discovery Process|
|Apache||HTTP Web Server||No||No|

Any application which has "Yes" indicated or "Must Be Running?" will likely be undetected if the application is not running when SysInfo is run. For these applications, SysInfo looks at the system process table using the ps(1) command. If the process is not running, in some cases SysInfo will attempt to discover the application by searching standard directory locations such as /opt and /usr/local.
Any application which has "Yes" indicated for "Requires Root?" will not be detected if SysInfo is not run as root (either by being installed by root or being run as root). However, if "No" is indicated the application may still not be detected in some cases where file access permissions of the user running SysInfo are insufficient to open the applications files. Running SysInfo without root privileges is not supported, nor recommended.
