In ManageIQ we need to fetch the current availability of many resources at once.
This can be e.g. all servers or all datasources. It can also be a server with all its recursive child-resources from Inventory.
Right now each availability value needs to be fetched individually, which requires many round trips.
It would be good to be able to bulk fetch many metrics at once.
Perhaps even by providing a metric name pattern like e.g. "/f;/m;AI~R~AT" to read availability for all servers and all feeds.
If that does not work it should at least be possible to get all availabilities for one server and all its sub-resources in one request, as in my understanding the values all start with the same feed+name prefix.
