  1. [Feature request] Honolulu should be able to send Email notifications

    Please add a functionality to Honolulu that enables the Honolulu Server to send Email notifications. There should be two options:
    1. a global value to be notified via Email if there are Warnings/Alerts - the should be a option to chose: notify for warnings and alerts and notify only for alerts
    2. it would be great to have an button nearby important configurable values "create alert" and then there should be an option to configure a value and chose if the notification should be send when the running value gets greater or smaller than the configured value

      • [Deployment] Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins

        Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins. I find it hard to believe that every admin at a business will need to config this product separately. Why not have a admin group that can see all and have one person doing all the config work.....

        • [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.

                      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.
