As from version BETA2 we have added the first four widgets reporting on the health of the cluster, as well as providin some immediate actions:

Resource Description Action
Networks The number of avail networks and their status Add new network
Datastores The number of avail datastores and their status Add new datastore
Instances The number of avail instances and their status Add new instance

We are hoping to add two extra resource widgets reporting on the health status of the physical resources of the cluster, as in the actual nodes as well as the physical disks.
