The latency is 80-100ms for an ICMP ping. I have no idea if that's a
low or high value.

I played a bit around and noticed that when I increase the Update
interval from 60 seconds to 30 minutes, the lags are heavily reduced.
Probably getting the stats from the machines took somewhere between 30
seconds and one minute, causing the connection to be full with status
updates.

I also assume that remote calls are somewhat blocking, because when I
attempt to move around the window, it doesn't get re-drawn. Probably
different threads for stats update and management functions could help.

cheers,
Felicitus
