Can Splunk DB Connect be suspended or suppressed during database maintenance?

Motivator

We had an issue last night where the Splunk DB Connect Input queries tried to run while database maintenance was going on so they all failed and were auto-disabled. I had to go in and re-enable them all this morning. I've gone though the documentation I can find and don't see anything about maintenance windows or an overall disable/enable process.

Is there a way to suspend or suppress all DB Connect queries for a time period during our maintenance windows so this won't happen again?

This situation is completely re-engineered and the problem eliminated in DB Connect V3 which should be released any day. Perhaps @jcoates will elaborate but the solution is to upgrade ASAP to V3.

I was hoping there was a better answer but I guess we'll just have to manage for now and wait for the new version. Thank you!
