prewikka agents page refresh feature
On the prewikka agents page there is no refresh feature as is on the "heartbeats" or "events" pages. This would be a benefit to an administrator who wants to leave up an agents page so at a glance he/she can see if the agent connection is active.

Agreed, we require an enhancement here.
If you are using Iceweasel or Firefox you could right-click on the page and choose "Reload Every ->" to have
your browser perform this function for you, still you would need to check the page and actually interpret it to
determine if there were an action necessary on your part.
It would be even better if there where a KDE and Gnome Desktop "Notification" (using "Notification Area 2.20.3" or similar), this way
you could get a "Balloon Alert Popup" if you lost a heartbeat or there were something to see at: http://localhost:8000/?view=alert_listing
(or any other user-defined page).
You could then click on the balloon (and if IW/FF were already open then open a new tab, otherwise) start the browser and
have the login page 'click-thru' to the "alert_listing" (or any other) page automatically.
Since Desktops are quite common this is desperately needed as it would enhance security by providing an immediate alert without
the need to refresh your browser page and sift through any lower priority alerts just to find a severe threat.
