The idea is to give power to the SNO to configure availability preferences of his node based on how own preferences. E.g. limit bandwidth at certain times of the day, or deactivate the node completely on schedule (maybe the user requires high performance on his storage or high bandwidth), or set daily/hourly limits for egress/ingress. This would of course have an impact on the node’s overall rating and rewards adjusted accordingly based on that. The less restrictions (i.e 24x7 availability with the highest performance possible) the better the reward is. Realistically speaking many potential SNOs would decide not to join the network and host a node because of the lack of control on their IO and bandwidth.
Also a manual button to temporarily deactivate the node from the dashboard (maintenance mode, let’s say we want to update the storage firmware) would be nice.
Just leaving this here for discussion
