hi is there any way to conditionally disable a sensor? for my usecase I have two pipelines each triggered by their own sensor. the first pipeline consumes from something like kafka, it checks if a record needs to be annotated, if not it sends to the database, if so it sends to a rabbit mq queue. the second pipelines sensor reads from the queue and sends records to an annotation service. it includes retry functionality so that if there is a problem with the annotation service it will exponential backoff and keep retrying until eventually it gives up. I would like to disable this sensor if there are too many jobs waiting on backoffs. i.e if the annotation service goes down

hm im not sure we have an api for that. Is it possible to include this logic in the sensor?

hmm, yea I can probably run a health check every n iterations or something and return if it comes back bad
