User story

As a PRTG user, I want a Sensor that can detect a server restart caused by an administrator and ignore Errors for a certain ammount of time.

Details of user story

The Idea is simple: We have to work with quite a lot of servers, which also have to be restarted every now and then. A sensor that can automatically detect when an administrator is restarting a server, blocking all error messages for, lets say, the next 10 minutes would be really helpfull.

Acceptance criteria

- It should be able to differentiate between a restart caused by an administrator and a restart caused by other issues etc.

- the ammount of time, during which the errors are blocked or ignored, should be selectable.
