I would like to request a feature be implemented in Onapp.
There is a desperate need for a more intuitive progress indicator for running tasks in Onapp like VM Migrations, Storage Migrations and Backups.
Currently when a task is running the box in the log viewer changes to blue with the word Running and a pair of circling arrows.
I suggest making this blue box more active by having it slowly turn green starting from left to right in proportion to the tasks actual progress. e.g. as the task is 10% complete the box would be 10% green and 90% blue and if the task was 75% complete then the box would be 75% green starting from the left and 25% blue at the right side of the box. (you get the picture)
This would have a lot of benefits from knowing how a task is doing, if it has crashed or even started at all. It is also a good indicator of how overall performance is behaving on things like the storage layer etc.
Please make this happen, it is an essential tool in our vmware infrastructure and woud be valuable in Onapp.
