Large resource statuses to load a small subset of status event and allow user to page between them to improve performance. So if a resource has more than 30 (user configurable) statuses against it, it would load the first 30 and provide an option to page between additional pages containing the next 30 etc.

Currently if a resource has lots of statuses against them then opening the status view can sit there for ages before loading or giving up and throwing an error. By limiting the number shown and allowing the user to step through additional status r...

Allow more than one servicenow observer job to run which will allow us to improve observation times and more control over when/what we collect

At the moment whilst you can create more than one servicenow observer job, it is pretty useless as even though they have different job names and a different set of classes associated in discovery what tends to happen is that you might have a job t...
