Needs adjustments to match the look and feel of the planned dashboards / cockpit, but otherwise - looks great! Kudos for the idea!

+1, looks very nice.
Note that it requires sync with others' work. Mainly you should migrate the side
tab to an upper tab (like the dashboard) which we should be working on.


The main page (see cockpit_vmsList.png) shows all running VMs on the host. A detail can be displayed by clicking on a name.

When logged to the engine, there's a list of all VMs (in all states) available. User will be redirected to corresponding host (and it's cockpit-oVirt) to show VM detail when clicking on a running VM.
Basic actions will be provided (like Run). These actions will issue corresponding command on engine (REST API).

On the VDSM page, the user can edit the vdsm.conf or manage the vdsmd service running on the host (click-through to detail of the cockpit's 'Service' component).

I plan to add screenshots to the Feature Wiki page once it's ready.
Video is a great idea, adding it to the todo list.

Can we have some screenshot or even a short video? That would be wonderful!

The rpm is not yet ready. As soon as some WIP is done, I'll focus on that.
