Add a LIM Showstatus 'lsadmin' Option

Today, in LSF, there is a "badmin showstatus" that gives us information such as reconfig time, restart times, host counts, user counts, etc. It would be nice to have an 'lsadmin showstatus' option as well. I would think the following would be good metrics: Metric reconfig time restart time numeric resources: resource name, consumable (Y/N), cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts string resources: resource name, cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts boolean resources: resource name, cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts clients: cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts clusters connected: cur clusters, max clusters, avg clusters master lim memory: cur memory, avg memory, max memory master lim connections: cur connections, avg connections, max connections secondary masters: cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts res down hosts: cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts lim down hosts: cur hosts, max hosts, avg hosts ... I'm sure there are some other metrics that would be good.
