Progress bar on OCS interface?

I curently work on the last version OCS Server 2.9.2 and i would like to know if there is any way to track the deployement through a progress bar (maybe a plugin?). Any guess about how to implement it?
Maybe it's a feature that is plan to be implemented by the editor in a next version?

Thank you for your answer or advice.

You have already some informations :

- in Deployement > Activate, for each package you have 3 counts : Notified, Success, Error

- when you click on 'Statistics', in a new tab you'll get a circular graphics with all cases : Success, Waiting notification, All the errors, Notified, all with % and a small table with total

I understand, it's not a bar, but you can see all cases and %.

Each case has a number which give the list of materials in the case : for 'All the errors', you could, simply, select all and Deploy again for retry.

Consider, the deployement as an operation light, simple, and efficient and depend of agents :

- light : on server, you create a package, then activate it, then affect the package to materials. The download is slow if package is fragmented (4M) with 1 minute between fragments.

- simple and efficient : it's ok for active materials, but for computers running few days a week, you can wait ...

- depend on agent : when the agent have a contact with server, it receives timestamp of packages for it, download it, executes it and send result.

what you also can do is to create installation logfiles and write them directly to a network share.

This isn't a progress bar, but you can see what is going on.

Kind regards

The OCS deployement is complete : you have all informations needed

- all materials with package affected = 'total'

- materials with package successsfully installed = 'Success'

- materials installing the package = 'Notified'

- materials without communications with server = 'Waiting notification'

- materials with errors in deployement = 'Errors' : you can have the kind of error

For 'Errors', you could retry (if different of 'already installed').

The main problem is materials 'Waiting notification' : is the material is stopped ? is the material is running but agent didn't run ? For 'Notified', you need to investigate why some materials stay in this state : sometimes the result goes to server soon after execution, sometimes the result goes to server at the new contact agent - server.

IMHO a little change for OCS server is, in Deployement > Activation,

- the good columns are 'Waiting notification', 'Success', 'Errors', 'Notified' and maybe 'Total'

- (maybe 'Total' because 'Total' is the sum of 4 others columns)

- maybe each column with format 'number (% of total)' (without 'Total (100%)')

- maybe best order 'Waiting', 'Notified', 'Success', 'Errors' because this is the chrono order
