Problem this snippet solves:

This example illustrates how to use the get_all_software_status method in the System SoftwareManagement interface.

Through the iControl interfaces, we've exposed many of the features on the BIG-IP. In this example, I'll illustrate the new System Software Status method in version BIG-IP version 10.1. This information can be found on the "System.Software Management.Image List" menu item on the BIG-IP management GUI. From this information you can determine the installed images on the BIG-IP as well as their active state and status of live software installs.
