Monitoring alerts OS version and OS latest patch for DSE running servers

Is this possible to create custom monitoring alerts or template for finding the linux OS version and latest OS patch information running across the DSE installed servers.

its like we want to execute a wrapper script to collect our customized alerts related to the DSE as well from the OS on which the DSE is running and getting this information as an alert through alert rule.
We did some POC in this, but currently customized alerting is show stopper for us. Please help us on this.

@aravinth_chakravarthyr_173918 I may have misunderstood your question so please feel free to correct me but it sounds like you want alerting setup in relation to your operating system version and patch levels. If so, DataStax Enterprise is not the right place to look for a solution and I recommend you discuss your requirements with your sysadmin team since this is an infrastructure issue and not really a database software issue. Cheers!

The quick answer is no. OpsCenter wasn't designed to be a replacement for your infrastructure monitoring. Cheers!
