Spike Asset Manager (SAM) is an open-source cross-platform framework for probing a system for components and reporting them. It includes a driver file that probes for components commonly found in a LAMPJ stack (Apache, MySQL, PHP, Tomcat, etc).
SAM can find multiple versions that are installed, query the rpm database and indicate whether components are running. Driver files may be edited to search for different components.
SAM can be extended by writing extension plugins (shell, perl, python, java, etc). It can also be extended by changing the code and creating additional directives for the driver file.
The list of components that SAM currently looks for include:
What's New in This Release:

· The Web site has also moved to the SpikeSource developer Web site.
