patch level

how can i know the patch level in solaris 10?
is there a command to know what patchs installed in my solaris?
i mean is there any tool i can run to know that other than
pkginfo | more

i need to make an inventory of all my SUN servers.
i can run explorer in all the machines but unfortunately i dont have the tool that diagnose it and produce the result in human readable form.

This how I do it at work
uname -a

This will give you output like this:
SunOS  [servername] 5.# Generic_122300-59 sun4u SUNW,Sun-fire-V210

The 5.# gives you the OS version 5.9 for Solaris 9 for example.
Generic_122300-59 is the patch level. The higher the number the better.

This of course doesn't tell you whats installed, the command above will tell you that. This is useful when trying to see if the latest patches have been applied when doing many servers.

Below command can also be used for listing all installed paches.
showrev -p
Below command will list current kernel patch level.
uname -a
Below file will tell you current release and update level for Solaris.
cat /etc/release
Please be informed that if you install patch bundle/cluster, /etc/release may or may not reflect correct Update level.
