There are certain things we network people need to debug problems.  We need:

  - The IP address of the active source
  - The IP address of the multicast group
  - The specific machine that is not receiving traffic
  - A commitment to leave the source and receiver active at some
    reasonably constant data rate

It would sure be nice if the AG 2.0 node-op software would support a 
single-click dialog box, consolidating this key information for network 
debugging.  The node op could then simply cut & paste it into an email 
message, mud buffer, or trouble ticket description.
