Lots of customizations can be performed.

You may want to take a look at VMware Community PowerPack.

There was a previous EE thread last yr that discussed this. "bgoering" offered a suggestion in it that may be what you're looking for:

Yeah - there isn't a lot there by default. Custom attributes are the only way to get more info there. Those attributes have to be manually maintained however, so I don't know how useful that would be in this case as most of that info is available simply by clicking on the host.

You might try right clicking on the column header on the hosts tab and see if everything is selected.
