  1. [ui] add PowerShell hints to the various user interfaces

    Since all of the Honolulu output is based on WMI and CIM calls executed through PowerShell, it would be useful to have a link in the right hand pane (perhaps the details pane) that will expose what commands were issued to gather the displayed information. This supports PowerShell's goal of ease of learning and discoverability. You use Honolulu to execute one management task against one machine, learn the PowerShell, and you can execute the same task against as many machines as you want.

      • [Multi-Machine] Please create consolditated view on the servers in Honolulu console

        Actually its possible to add different servers to Honolulu console to manage them individually. It would be great to have a consolidated view over all these managed servers regarding warnings, alerts, performance and capacity data with a drill down option into the affected server object.

          • Login page with SSO button (+ User Management)

            Gives the possibility to login in with an admin account, if you are working with an normal account on your computer.
            Also you should be able to restrict access to i.e. an AD group.

                                      • [Overview] [Disk Metrics] Disk latency and queue

                                        It shows send and receive, missing the latency though. Would be nice to see latency and the disk queue as well.
