See your YUM history

Share This:

Yum has the ability to show you the yum activity of the past. For example, if you want to know when you (or someone) ran a YUM command on a given system, you can.

To get an overview, issue the following command

yum history

You’ll get something like this:

[root@www.agix.local: ~]# yum history list
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, security
ID     | Login user               | Date and time    | Action(s)      | Altered
    21 | Managed ...  | 2014-10-15 09:40 | Install        |    1   

Notice the number in the left column. It’s a reference for more information. So you can enter the following command to get the information about that YUM event:

yum history info 5

And the following is what i get as the result of the above command:

[root@www.agix.local: ~]# yum history info 5
