Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1467491
[RFE] [6.3] The content on dashboard items must be updated
Last modified: 2017-07-12 07:27:04 EDT
"Chapter 1. Using the Red Hat Satellite Content Dashboard" in the Host Configuration Guide is out of date, and must be updated to include the currently available items.
Major changes include the following -
* 'Content Host Subscription Status' should be changed to 'Host Subscription
Status', and the status types checked.
* A similar table for 'Host Configuration Status' should be added.
* A similar table for 'Virt-who Configuration Status' should be added.
* Other items, such as for 'Red Hat Insights Actions' and 'Red Hat Insights Risk
Summary', should be described.
Assigning to Misha for review.
Thank you for your needinfo request.
In response to your questions -
* Host Configuration Status
A little more detail would be useful, even if we just change the simple
explanations we currently have into full sentences. For example, 'Hosts in
error state' to 'Hosts on which an error was detected during the last
* Virt-who Configuration Status
After searching for 'Virt-who Configuration Status', I found the following
This provides a few more details about what each of these items used to be,
although there have been some other changes as well by the looks of it.
Based on this, it looks like each item explains the status of reports
received from the virt-who daemon running on hosts in the environment. These
look similar to those for hosts - no reports received, no changes applied,
no changes needed so everything is unchanged and thus ok, and the total.
* Red Hat Insights Actions, Red Hat Insights Risk Summary
Red Hat Insights is a tool embedded in Satellite and other products that
checks the environment and suggests actions you can take. For the first item,
a simple explanation of the 'type' of actions, such as 'Stability' might be
useful. Unfortunately, I cannot find a detailed explanation as yet, so
just a simple explanation will have to do for now. Rather than having a
full table, maybe just a quick paragraph explaining that issues are sorted
into categories will do. The same for the risk levels in the second item.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
This BZ ticket has been resolved and I am closing it as next release.
