Please consider optimizing the server admin console for utility rather than design.
1. don't hide the command menus under cryptic icons in the upper right (Open, Close, Pause, Create a Schedule, etc.)
2. use the left sidebar to expose the options rather than forcing me to dig through tabs and sub-tabs; for example what is the point of the "Activity" option vs. simply giving us Databases and Clients directly in the sidebar? I propose that those be made full sidebar citizens, while the rest of the sub-tabs be added to the sidebar as hierarchically indented options.
This idea aims to improve usability and user experience. Functionality is not addressed in this idea.
