Visual design

    #1 is a good point regarding unhiding the search box by default.

    For #2, We will look into the tab view vs an alternative as the page gets too big with all the info.

    For #3 Can you please explain what do you mean by data tables here?

    For #4, the reason type of device(physical, virtual, blade etc.) and the attributes like network switch, virtual host etc. are different because with all this modular design and software defined networking it is hard to contain all these attributes in a type now. For example, a virtual host can be a network switch or a blade device can be a virtual host.

    Ad 2) Why must the page be a certain size? I would much rather have it all in a single page - scrolling is very easy if you have a scroll mouse or a Page Down key on your keyboard. Switching between the tabs require that I mouse click on a small tab. Furthermore, putting information in tabs rather than on a single page, it is no longer possible to scan or even use browser search to find the piece of information you're looking for.


    Ad 3) The data tables is the content in the tabs. Each tab looks like a single big table with rows with different number of cells.


    Ad 3) Then at least hide the things the device is not. Display if something is clicked on, otherwise don't. It really is taking up a lot of screen space without providing value. I think it is a waste of space on the device view of all my servers to explicitly state that they are not fibre channel switches and they are not blade chassis. Also, I am a bit curious why there is no place I can actually select that a device is a server. Those are the ones I have the most of and I have no place to designate a device as a server. I just have to infer that when it is not a chassis, a switch etc., then it is a server.
