Dear all,

having worked with oVirt in the past there are some features that I am really 
missing in PVE in my daily work:

a) a tabular overview over all virtual machines. This should/might also include 
some performance data and the description.  See the attached partial screenshot 
from oVirt, where this is implemented quite nicely. This is /not/ to replace 
proper monitoring but to provide a quick overview over the PVE-based 

Isn't this what Datacenter -> Search could be? Note that the list drops any 

Partially. It is still missing some data that I really like in the oVirt overview (e.g. comments/descriptions, IP and the thumbnailed timelines(!) for CPU, memory and network ecc.)

I have uploaded the screenshot to https://pasteboard.co/J9B4cEc.png.

a1) the possibility to provide the virtual machines and containers with a 
short, one-line description

Why not use the VM/CT notes? Editable over VM/CT -> Summary panel?

We do use these notes heavily, but unfortunately they don't seem to be searchable/usable for filtering. It would be nice to have a "Description" which would be a one-liner, like the description for the HA resources.

b) the possibility to use keywords from the Notes field or the description (see a1 above) 
in the search box.  Our hosts are all named <unit>-vm<vm_number> which forces 
us to keep a separate list for the mapping of services to hostnames

Dominik has done some patches adding "tags", which then would be searchable.
Some backend support is there, but we had some discussion about how to integrate
them in the frontend. I think this will be picked up soonish and should provide
what you seek in b) maybe also a1..

yes, such tags would come in very handy and could partially replace the description if they can be used for filtering.
