CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


We have a group that scans servers to discover the applications running, they are looking for a file that would tell them the version of DX NetOps Performance Management currently installed.

I am not aware of a file but wanted to check and see if there is a file, what file it would be and where on the different component systems it lives.

Looking for the information for all systems from DX NetOps Performance Management including:

  • Performance Center
  • Data Aggregator
  • Data Collector(s)
  • Data Repository
  • Fault Tolerant Data Aggregator Proxy


All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases


Use the /var/.com.zerog.registry.xml file found on all systems.

Additional Information

We don't recommend using the .history file found on most systems. If there is even a minor error during an install or upgrade, that file may not be properly updated. It's only updated for fully clean and error free installations.
