Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-4438) Developer Curb Appeal: Cloud Admin UI: Need legend, and maybe mouse-over

Mark Bennett created SOLR-4438:

             Summary: Developer Curb Appeal: Cloud Admin UI: Need legend, and maybe mouse-over
                 Key: SOLR-4438
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SolrCloud
    Affects Versions: 4.1
            Reporter: Mark Bennett
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.2

It's nice that we display a cloud view showing a graphical representation of the cluster.

However, it'd be nice if we included a Legend to explain what the colors mean.

Some reasons the current system might not be as obvious as you'd think:
* The colors don't look exactly Green, Yellow, Red, and Gray on some monitors
* I'm told that the green=good, red=bad, etc isn't universal in all countries.
* Some people can't see the colors.  Of course a color code legend won't be of much help to
a color blind person.  Ideally we might also put a textual status in parenthesis to the right
of the IP address.

Additionally it'd be nice to have some type of mouse-over with a bit more summary info, if
known. (although that doesn't help tablet users).

We could consider changing the click behavior to show the mouse-over dialog box, and then
let them click in there to open a new window with that other node's details.
