Question Finding patch level in AIX


How to find out patch level in AIX and what patches are installed on AIX box?

As per my knowledge oslevel -s will give service and maintanance level description , but regarding patch level any command is there?

oslevel -s

- shows you TL and PS
instfix -i | grep ML

- shows you which TLs are complete or partially installed.
instfix -ivk 5300-06_AIX_ML | grep : | grep not

- shows you what's missing (in this example to have TL6 completely installed).

Kind regards
