Even more praise for the XIV GUI

I know I have already blogged about the XIV GUI and how it just keeps getting better and better....
But I feel the need to share yet another improvement to the way the GUI presents information.
In this case its an additional widget to show the health of each module in the XIV.
A fully configured XIV consists of 15 modules, each module containing components like fans, power supplies and disk drives.
In addition it is of course running firmware (the secret sauce of the XIV).
Another new feature is that now when you hover over the left hand side of each module, a small magnifying glass appears.
When it does, just left click on your mouse and the module slides out (virtually of course!).
If you then hover over a component within the module, health information is displayed. How nice is that?
Don't forget, you can download the GUI and just logon as p10demomode to check it out for yourself (without an XIV).
If you have an existing XIV, its time to upgrade your XIV GUI to version 2.4.3 Build 11.
