Add Connection Status for TCPIP connection based message flows to WebUI AND ACE REST API

For our TCPIP based message flows that use a TCPIP policy, we want to be able to monitor the Connection Status for each of these flows in real-time. We can only think to use the netstat OS command to obtain the status ie ESTABLISHED is good. We want the ability to see this property in WebUI AND have it available on the ACE REST API.

    Idea review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this suggestion which we are moving to Future Consideration status. We would be interested in hearing more about the type of monitoring information that you currently use / would be interested being applied to this scenario ... for example rather than simply whether a port has been opened, perhaps an output showing total messages/bytes received/sent would be helpful? Also, knowing the specific message flow nodes which you use in these situations would help guide us (TCPIPServerInput / TCPIPServerOutput / TCPIPServerReceive / TCPIPClientInput / TCPIPClientOutput / TCPIPClientReceive / HL7DFDLInput / HL7DFDLOutput ?).
