Alist is a program that collects hardware and software information about 
systems and stores it in a database for users to browse and search via a Web 
interface. The program consists of three parts: a client portion that collects 
the information, a daemon that receives data sent from clients, and a CGI that 
displays and lets you search for information. Clients for Solaris, Linux, 
FreeBsd, OpenBSD, HP-UX, Irix, Windows, and Mac OS X are currently available. 

Alist is written entirely in Perl 5. The server portion has been tested on

fork(). The server needs to have a web server, Perl 5, and the Perl 

The client portion requires Perl 5, but no modules outside the core 
distribution are required. There are currently clients for Solaris, Linux, OS 
X, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD, Windows, HP-UX and Irix.
