DPOD 1.8.5 option to set predefined duration for Syslog Setup IDG using DPOD UI

There is customer were they have many IDG and High Load that initial scope of monitoring ALL the time, ALL the feutures, for ALL the IDG will imply a lot of hardware resources on the DPOD nodes. In that cases a bussiness option definition is to use DPOD Syslog monitoring as "On Demand" resource. That will allow to reduce de amount of total data the Nodes of DPOD will be available to process. In current version the Setup on/off have to be manually or using API REST. Will be better to have the option on the setup process to set a predefined value of duration with possible values as 1,2,3,n hours or manually (as is today).
