Description Nico Stöckigt univentionstaff 2018-12-18 14:36:14 CET
When hovering over the vm name entry the current status and host is shown. In case the name is too long to show there are three dots (...) at the end of the name. It would be better to show the whole name when hovering the entry.
Also it seems to be a good idea to also display the IP (if applicable) in the tool-tip.

Since the host list on the left also displays CPU and Mem usage in percentage it would be an improvement to match the display also in the vm list; so remove the (not so fancy) bar and just show the percentage, this will free some space for more important info.

No good idea:
- a host may not have any IP at all
- a host may have many IP addresses
- a host may both have IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
- the public visible addresses may not even be associated with the host itself (think virtual router)
