E.g. on the session page, both usernames and agent names can be quite long, so long that the assigned width of the column is not enough to properly show the data. If the name contains a long prefix, the important parts of the name will be hidden by out truncation. For example, agent names like these will be shown like below on the sessions page:

mythinlinccluster.agent1.example.com -> mythinlincclust...
mythinlinccluster.agent2.example.com -> mythinlincclust...

Currently, CSS can only truncate by hiding the end of the string. There is a W3C proposal for allowing different types of truncation:

Another possibility is parsing the strings through javascript and which parts to hide in the truncation.
