That's a good point but it's actually something completely different.

It's a different use case, e.g., something like Samba service to
which clients might be connected "right now" and copying files.
If we talk about DNS, DHCP or NTP Server, then nobody cares.

But Ancor Gonzalez Sosa <ancor@xxxxxxx> initially wrote:

usability problems in all modules that manages servers

which I understand that he has all services in mind.

Then Ancor Gonzalez Sosah wrote:

taking this dns-server screenshot as starting point

which I understand that DNS is only meant as initial example.

If my understanding is right, there is no such thing as
"completely different use cases" because all are one same
use case "GUI for all modules that manage services".
