Ability to Make the POST Targets endpoint Non-Blocking when adding New Targets

When using the API to add targets in bulk, each call to add a target is blocking and requires validation to complete (success or fail) before returning a HTTP response. This is less than ideal since the script/process adding targets has to wait fo...

For HA workloads (consistent resize), allow Match Cores

Today Turbonomic matches utilization based on MHz. There are use cases for when teams would want to have all their vms have matching core counts. Please add functionality to match by core count for Consistent Resize capability.
