Chia-blockchain: [ENHANCEMENT] `chia farm summary` should show remote harvesters

1

Currently we have:

Farming status: Farming                                                         
Total chia farmed: 0.0                                                          
User transaction fees: 0.0                                                      
Block rewards: 0.0                                                              
Last height farmed: 0                                                           
Plot count: 80                                                                  
Total size of plots: 7.919 TiB                                                  
Estimated network space: 137.114 PiB                                            
Expected time to win: 3 days

But this is disconcerting, because it doesn’t allow you to verify that your remote harvesters are operating correctly. It could be something like this when more than one harvester node is active:

Farming status: Farming

User transaction fees: 0.0                                                      
Block rewards: 0.0                                                              
Last height farmed: 0

@dorkmo, totally. And you can inspect the logs on the farmer if you have

log_level: INFO

set. But this would be a much better CLI UX.

ive found the best thing to look at in the gui for assurance is the "last attempted proof" time stamp, and is it within a minute of current time.

Yeah this would be a nice feature to have. Farmer would need to store the farming info and provide this in the RPC. not super complicated feature. If anyone wants to code this up, let me know and I can provide guidance.

This feature would be awesome, because right now I noticed that farming is pretty unstable. It happened to me that the GUI showed "farming" but it wasn't, as I mentioned in another issue thread. I would also like a more user friendly guide for using the CLI.
