    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
paper.

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.
