Simplify PAW Thread Monitoring

There is to much going on in the Administration portal of PAW when you are attempting to monitor threads running in your Planning Analytics instance. Many of us still continue to use TM1Top because of the simplicity to see a large number of threads at one time. 

Our servers are large and we will have 100+ threads running concurrently at some pints. As worker threads spawn and release, users launch new queries, etc. it is very difficult to continue scrolling through the thread list to identify threads in wait status, validate how long threads have been running etc,. I have to always use the scroll bar on the right as you can only see 7 threads at one time in the small window.

    The IBM Planning Analytics team is not planning on addressing the threads monitoring functionality in 2021. We may revisit the PAA UI and threads management capabilities at a later time.

    Please note that some changes were made to the thread monitoring interface as part of the new UI experience in 2.0.57. Some consideration was provided to showing more rows and better use of space. We maintained the search/filter option to allow you to identify and filter on threads based on a user name, state, etc.

    I am currently encountering the same types of issues with an IBM Cloud client with hundreds of users and we are also using RUNTI. It makes no sense to only display a few threads in a window pane you constantly have to scroll on but then dedicate enormous amounts of screen space to the sever health information.
