Re: Case 1679 (https://mynms.opennms.com/Ticket/Display.html?id=1679)
Presently each <outage> instance can be defined in terms of the interface IP address, or the node ID.
It would be hugely useful if a [surveillance] category can be used to determine whether polling (and hence notifications) can be paused for a set time period.
Our use case for this is a customer-facing UI where customers can enable/disable alerts based on time of day (e.g. don't alert overnight when backups over the WAN are running)
