Labsy got a reaction from JCrawford-BT in Why I don't like new PW design?
All the best to developers of PW at all extent, that's least what they deserve. I really love it very much, that PW idea is not dead, love to see development taking places and things going forward into new dimensions.
BUT I also love to criticize what bothers me. And this time it is that flat, anemic, Windows 10-like design, which got rid of colors, titles are all of the sudden not bigger and bolder, but smaller and barely seen, my eye cannot rely on blazing fast brain functionality to distinguish between different colors, because colors are gone, so I need to read what each icon means, especially under a bit stronger sunlight. And to my frustration I realize, that it takes me noticeably longer to get to where I want to go, to find what I am looking for. And that I need to think, read, evaluate navigation menus, that I need my glasses to get to services of one particular server, because I cannot distinguish company names anymore. And this really pulls my nerve - why, why did you seize really good base into this kindergarten made pancake?!
Why so many designers just blindfoldly follow Win 10 idiotic flat design and themes? Some idiot at MS had too much influence, now years later whole world will drawn in inefficiency and idiocracy of non-human-centric and not-user-friendly designs for decades? How nobody thinks about how brain works? How human eye distinguishes details better, how to take advantage of shortcuts and speed thinking, which is already built-in into our brain...are all designers really so stupid, that they do not see the obvious anymore? Sorry designers, for marking some of you as idiots and being stupid, but I really do not think your principle to blindly follow what's trendy cannot be named with sweet and friendly names.
So, to be constructive, my suggestion:
Please, be so kind and open theme design to public, or just add "Good old color design" option checkbox to settings page.
Labsy got a reaction from Paul in PCMonitorSrv consuming I/O disk reads
did you ever resolve this issue? I have dozen of servers with same symptoms - Pulseway service is top disk I/O Reader:
Typically I have NO plugins installed, and under settings on all servers selected those features:
SYSTEM --> NETWORK --> Display Ping Response from some IP SYSTEM --> SERVICES --> Selected to manage all Auto-start services SYSTEM --> FILE BROWSER Enabled SYSTEM --> REMOTE DESKTOP Enabled MODULES --> MANAGE --> Active Directory MODULES --> MANAGE --> Exchange MODULES --> MANAGE --> IIS MODULES --> MANAGE --> SQL Server MODULES --> MANAGE --> Windows Server Backup NOTIFICATIONS --> Services NOTIFICATIONS --> Storage NOTIFICATIONS --> Hardware --> CPU temperature NOTIFICATIONS --> SERVER MODULES --> AD (Locked User) NOTIFICATIONS --> SERVER MODULES --> Exchange (Messages Que longer than 20) That's more or less all I have.
It is hard for me to test, because I would need to disable all features and enable them one by one, reboot server and left it over for a week or so to see results.
Labsy got a reaction from Jaapyse in Auto Clear Notifications Based on Trigger Conditions
I had a similar idea to split NOTIFICATIONS from STATUS indicator.
As of now they are both the same, bu I would find it more handy to have STATUS icon be based on curent status instead of upon past read/unread notifications.
So when alert condition would go away, server status would change back to green, while you could steel see notifications history under notificstions.
Maybe notifications display could be rearanged so that cleared notification would be a subset of alert notification, like a tree branch to easier see, which green cleared which alert.
Labsy got a reaction from dre in Alarms should clear them selves
Ome more thing regarding notifications:
When viewing notifications, beside "delete all" there should be an option to "Acknowlidge all", so they would be all marked as read, but would not vanish from notifications view. Seems reasonable and quite easy to implement to me.
