[RFE] Identify virtual to physical host relationships for subscribed systems
Last modified: 2014-07-02 10:06:32 EDT
Description of problem:
It should be eaiser to identify physical and virtual systems and hierarchy of host to guest from within Satellite WebUI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to reproduce:
register and subscribe host and guest systems to a satellite management system
To determine which system is physical and which is a virtual machine, one must drill down into the system details, one system at a time. There is no virtual to host mapping that is made either making managment of a virtual environment tedious.
Use an icon next to each subscribed system in the satellite WebUI similar to what is used in the Portal (ghost computer icon for VMs). Group guests with the host they are running on.
There is a new UI component coming that will help address just this problem. First, rather than the narrow list on the left, it will be a full-width table. This will allow more columns (and sortable). After that a feature will be added where rows in the table can be expandable to show, for example, a physical systems guests.
Thanks for the feedback!
Shorter term we could add the host/guest info the elasticsearch so at least there would be a way to filter what systems are shown.
katello nightly now has search by host/guest in systems
Entering "host:system1" in systems search field will return all registered virtual guests on system1. Entering "guests:vm1" will return the host that has a guest named vm1.
Further organizing systems by collapsing rows, etc. remains to be done.
Please provide verification steps
