Subject Re: [RFC] Metrics views for CloudStack UI
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2015 19:12:11 GMT
Hi Lucian,

- We are showing number of cores on the instances metrics view
- We can increase the width of the container/list-view but the UI assumes 1024px to be the
width and with this assumption several widgets/css rules are put in place, so it's a challenge
to get it right without breaking seen/unseen widgets and views. For such reasons, the columns
are made collapsible to hide a group of columns in case you don't want to use horizontal scrolling
and widths of columns made shorter to pack more information (increase the information density).
The other issue is all the widgets you see are created by JS code (directly using DOM manupulations)
so it's hard to reason about responsive widgets (many have fixed widths, or absolute positions
based on where the container starts etc). I can try if we can somehow implement a responsive
design/container.

Regards.

Great work Rohit,

What I'd like to see:
- vCPU list/count for instance metrics (GHz is meaningless to me)
- can we make the whole thing wider so we can fit more columns there without that ugly horizontal
scroll bar? So much wasted screen space
