Automated pausing of node monitoring.

Automated pausing feature needs to be developed to automatically
pause/suspend monitoring of mutiple Connect:Direct node groups during
datacetner swithover/failover. WIthin automated process individual
nodes or node groups must be configurable.
The reverse process must also be developed where predefined NDM nodes
or node groups will be brought on-line/made available for monitoring
(un-paused) in an automated fashion. (i.e. feeding a pre-defined config
file to a script).

Automated pausing is a requirement as part of the "automated and
controlled" primary system shutdown and switch over to standby system.
