Informix HQ Enhancement

When using out of the box sensors, or creating your own custom sensor, it would be helpful to have the ability to specify a time of day to run the sensor.

A real world example.

Our software give customers the ability to create their own queries. We have a customer whose system sometimes becomes sluggish and/or unresponsive every morning sometime between 6am and 7:30 am. We have verified it is not a schedule task. Since this doesn't happen at exactly the same time. Experience tells us that this may be due to an employee running a custom query. We would like to turn on SQL tracing, and have a custom sensor to query the data returned from the trace. I realize I can set the sensor to run at an interval, but being more granular with that interval would be helpful.

In the example above, I would like to run the sensor at 1 minute intervals, but don't want to run it for 24 hours at 1 minute intervals.

Thanks for the consideration, and this really cool forum to present ideas.
