# swlist -l product *SNMP*
# swlist -l product *SNMP* @hostname
this assumes that swacl is set properly on the remote servers

A few comments:
1. HP doesn't actually recommend the latest patch. This is popular for other operating systems, and fine for a test environment. But HP releases patches with some initial testing, and then does more rigorous testing and gets customer input before changing the "star rating" of the patch. Just because a patch exists (for any OS) doesn't mean it will make your system better by applying it. You should have a reason to apply those patches.
2. I'd recommend using SWA for this task:
There is more than just grepping involved to find out if a patch is needed:
- are applicable filesets installed?
- is the patch or a superseding patch applied to all the filesets?
SWA will do all this for you, and recommend the best patch (using the CHAIN analyzer), or can do issue-based analysis and only warn when there is a security patch required, for example.
Hope that helps.
