Instant pause

I have problem with a current scan I do for a test. The website that I'm scanning regularly gets dos'ed and the protection is that all access to the website is denied until the attack stops. At these times I'd like to be able to pause the scan. The problem is that when pausing and suspending Arachni continues to scan until the current page is audited, which it cannot do since it's no longer allowed to access it.

For me it would be wonderful to be able to instantly pause the scanner in situations like this.

Thanks for a very nice scanner!

    I can have another look at an instant pause but I'm not too hopeful about it.
    I dislike the fact that the pause takes a while to take affect so in order for the delay to be there there must have been a reason.

    As for an instant suspend, that's not possible, sorry.
