HP Email alerts for proliant servers

Like many of you I recieve the alerts  from HP regarding server updates. I'm talking about alerts with text like this:

 

Notice: (Revision) HP Smart Array P222, P420, and P822 Controllers Are Supported Only in HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers and HP Smart Array P421 Controllers Are Supported Only in HP ProLiant Gen8, HP ProLiant DL980 G7, and HP SL4545 G7 Servers (c03301849)

 

What I would like to do is to pull this information from remote machines using some sort of a command line tool. The hp tools permit this for machine which are on the same netwok. I manage client servers and the only way I know to do this is to manually connect to at least one server at each client and to scan the machines.

The hp SUM and update management tools are incredibly slow and as a consequence this is not something you do very often.

 

I imagine there must be something which can be executed and which will either return a csv or xml with the patch status (critical, etc) and its id.

 

Anyone suggest anything?
