How can we improve PI Connectors?

Support Failover at the data source level

For PI Connector (1.x) that support failover like OPC UA, failover will only occur when all data sources get into a bad state. Failover should not have to be configure at the PI Connector node level, but for each data source.

Use case 1:
If 3 connectors are installed:
-ConnectorA can connect to OPC1 and OPC2
-ConnectorB can connect to OPC1 and OPC3
-ConnectorC can connect to OPC2 and OPC3
Impossible to configure failover with the current implementation

Use case 2:
-ConnectorA has 5 data sources and is primary
-ConnectorB has 5 data sources and is backup
If 4/5 data sources on ConnectorA reach a bad state, failover will not occur

Use case 3:
-ConnectorA connects to OPC1 and OPC2
-ConnectorB connects only to OPC1 since OPC2's license only supports one connection
