Is there MAC version of Belarc Advisor or similar  Audit application for MAX OSX?
Belarc Advisor does an excellent job of auditing on Windows but what about MAC OSX OS
Similarly asked questions on EE with accepted answers in 2008/9 are showing url links that now do not work anymore.
It would be good to have a system provided listing of what is on the MAC to be used for a Clean Install.

For mixed networks of Windows and OSX .. I've used Spiceworks (www.spiceworks.com) which can audit OSX computers (the server software runs on Windows though)

The others I'm aware of include
http://www.open-audit.org/
http://www.total-network-inventory.com/
http://www.gfimax.com/

On OSX itself the software section in the system information (apple menu in top left: About this Mac : more info)   contains a list of all the software installed and can be exported to a text file ..
