How about a Redlight/Greenlight dashboard widget?

I think it would be useful to have a widget that was a simple red/green light. Maybe red/green/off. Maybe one big light or a grid of lights with description (to save space), or both! This would be great for Windows (or other) services on dashboards.

Any metric that is represented by a graph that is either a 1 or a 0 is pretty boring to look at. A simple green light = 1, red light = 0, lights out = NULL would be aesthetically pleasing.

I'm a SQL DBA and having this for my SQL services would be a great way to jump on and see if anything is not running that should be (even if I don't necessarily want to be alerted that it is not running).

  • Looks like the last update allowed for background colors on the Big Number widget which is great!  It would be perfect it it included green as well, or the ability chose custom colors.
