[PVE-User] Cluster Status Missing From External Metric Server Metrics

recently i have deployed allot of small Proxmox VE Clusters which now
have a need for Monitoring. I have used Influx and Grafana to monitor
Containers and VM's in the past and was very surprised to see that the
External Metric Server doesn't supply any Metrics about the Cluster
status (eg if quorate, number of votes, ...) even though this data is
available in the api (pvesh get /cluster/ha/status/current or pvesh get
/cluster/ha/status/manager_status). After investigating the source a bit
with my limited knowledge of perl i think that all needed librarys
already exists and that one could with very low effort add this data to
the External Metric Servers Metrics.
Is there a reason why these Metrics aren't exposed here or has this just
been forgotten about?
Is this something that the Proxmox team could implement?
This would make the External Metric Server a good & simple option for
Monitoring Clusters as nothing has to be installed on the Hosts
themselves and its now Configurable via the GUI.
Thanks in advance
