make dashboard more interactive and configurable
Dashboard in Solr4 is on its way to be more configurable and interactive. What is missing, in my mind, is:
a) ability to configure and see the entire distributed cluster of shards (non SolrCloud mode). Venturing into heavy-duty and external to Solr, but great, systems like zabbix is not always an option. There are lighter systems too, like FitNesse, but again -- they are external to Solr.
b) ability to configure via plug-and-play interface. For example to configure RAM / CPU / other system resource usage from external systems like graphite / carbon or via a push stats method
I would say a) would be more important for me as a user -- to be able to centrally control the situation with my search cluster and react as needed.

yes, I vote for all sorts of visualizations! They help to quickly overview the situation while having a cup of your favourite beverage.
