PowerCLI script to check VIBs on a host

I work in an environment where ESXi hosts require a lot of additional software to be installed.  Examples include a specific Cisco VEM module to be installed, the Trend DSA Filter driver etc.  A simple way to check what version or even if the software has been installed on the host is as follows.  This example will check if the Trend DSA Filter is installed.

(get-esxcli -vmhost hostname).software.vib.list() | where {$_.Name -eq "dvfilter-dsa"}

This will return information if the module is installed and give important information such as Versions etc.
