I use something like your "STAAAAHHHHPPP-procedure" and don't know of any
way to do it using the plug-in, I don't think it can be done.
Part of your hypothetical problem might be to aggresive vSphere DRS
settings that triggered these purely hypothetical vMotion jobs in vCenter,
I find the default DRS setting to be way to jumpy and tone that setting
back a bit.
