Hi Sridhara.
I am asking all the Forum community because I did few test few days ago and I could not determinate the difference, because I assume that running software should be the applications running at an specific time that we can see thru the task manager but on my tests it was not so.

The two are configured separately.  Installed software for Linux would be seen by running rpm -qa.  Running software on Linux would be seen if you ran a ps -e command.

I have successfully configured the installed, but having difficulty with running software even though I have it working on 10.22, but not on 2019.05 (see my post).

Historically, installed software/SAI signatures are created in DDMI / UDI components, while running software signatures are coming from DDMA/UD Full functionality.  In general, the type of data collected is a bit different – the installed software is recognized based on files/package rules, etc. while running software signatures use processes and ports + Jython plug-is (for discovery of more detailed data).

Installed software is discovered from repository like windows installation service, linux rpm , apt

Running software is discovered from process name and listening port.
