    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it with my team. We believe the functionality that you're looking for has actually been delivered in our v6.1 release which added details on CDPLEX status to the statistics. Please do upgrade to that or a newer version to start taking advantage of this enhancement. If you need guidance on the new stats I suspect support would be very willing to help.

    The CD manager needs to be notified when the CD Server is down to complete it's own shutdown.
