Inventory Agent status/health reporting

It would be helpful for CMS to have a agent report that would provide a status about the agent deployment in the environment.

The Status report should have a listing of all

  • the nodes that have an agent by computer name or display label.
  • the version of the installed agent
  • the version of the installed scanner
  • the status of the useage plug-in
  • the last date of collected utilization data
  • the last scan date
  • the current probe the Node was inventoried by
  • the current ip address 
  • call home status
  • any processing errors/reconciliation errors 
  • Unique UUID status

I agree, I would like to see a report such as this.  Perhaps even include the call home addresses configured.

We've seen requests like this multiple times over the years.  I'd argue this should be not just in a report, but in a dashboard similar to probe health.  We have over 20,000 agents deployed with very little insight into their operational status.

FYI, this requirement was brought up in today's CMS practitioners call by Frank @ Citi who manages 400K~ agents!!
