Description

I did some searching but did not see another feature request for this, so sorry if it's a dupe.

On the main Dashboard, there's a box ("widget"?) for the disks/pool, which shows information such as icons for all the disks and their device names, temperatures, serial #s, pool health, etc. And on the left in a big box (with a lot of empty wasted space) is a number showing how much of the pool is free. While this is important information, what is perhaps even more important is a sense of that that number means in percentage of the overall pool size. Considering how on the forums users are always warned about the dangers of using more than 80% of the total pool capacity (vs a specific number of GB/TB free). There is enough free space in this box where one could add a simple single horizontal bar-graph bar underneath the "Available" number which showed the usage as a visualization of overall usage of the total pool capacity, along with the actual % number.

I've attached a hypothetical mock-up to demonstrate the general sense of what I'm talking about. Certainly there are other ways draw this graphically in the box, but you get the idea.
