for this particular example: perhaps last sync time, and number of files 
on both sides. i realize this is a difficult problem...

number of files touched by sync per run?

currently there is a 'started/stopped/faulty' indicator for the geo-rep, 
could be exposed as well.

a monitoring interface that is guaranteed to be non-blocking would be a 
great enhancement.
