Description Mike McCune 2014-08-06 23:47:48 UTC
The UI/CLI/API all need an accurate way to display if the connection between the client and the server is active.

Either implement a heartbeat or a ping command that could be run manually where the agent could respond to requests for a successful round-trip communication.

This will allow our interface to properly show the status to the user.

Since goferd-style communication is going away, i'm closing this as rejected
