    Hi John,

    The way it was designed to work:

    (1) Systems with the highest # of updates available (with weight applied
    to security, bugfix, and enhancement errata in that order,
    greatest-to-least) are displayed towards the top of the list.

    (2) (Satellite-only) Systems with the highest # of critical / warning
    probes (weight applied in that status order, greatest-to-least.) are
    displayed towards the top. I believe if a system has both pending
    updates AND monitoring probes needing attention, it will float to the
    top of the list above systems with only pending updates OR monitoring
    probes needing attention.

    Make sense? Does this fit with what you've observed?

Yes I think that makes sense but I don't think it is what I'm
observing at all. Currently among the top 5 I see four systems with 2
outstanding updates and one system with a single outstanding update.
Needless to say, I have hundreds of systems in far worse shape on

I can see value in this even though I don't think it is currently
working here as it was intended to work. I think it might be really
nice if we could tweak some settings to fine tune the criteria used to
get on the list in the future.

As you may already be aware, Red Hat is transitioning from the Red Hat Network (RHN) hosted interface to the Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) interface in July 2017. Red Hat has invested in and seen success from RHN for many years, and used that experience to build more robust technologies like RHSM. 
If you have not yet migrated your RHN systems to RHSM or you are a Red Hat Satellite customer, please review the information from. https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#migration. 
Since we are shutting down RHN, no further actions will be taken with this bug or enhancement request.  You can find additional information at RHSM product page (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management).  If you have further questions, please contact support (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#support).
