Control Center 6.1.0.1 - Initiate Shutdown of EP from Web Console

Since much of the functionality is being moved to the Web console, it would be great if an admin could shutdown an event processor (one they're not logged on) and initiate the shutdown. Maybe even a system wide shutdown. The admin and other users ...

Enhancement request for Control Center 6.1 Web Console
