I would need a function to be programmed to stop a test.

Example:

We have a notice that there needs to be maintaining the system on a server 6:00 - 20:00. Instead of stopping the test to 6:00, or having to log in at 20:00 to stop the test for an hour, I need an option to pause the test 6:00 - 20:00.

Thank You.

Implemented years ago.
Quote from the manual:

Pause
Allows you to pause monitoring for selected test item(s) for a specific amount of time, e.g. next 20 min or till June 21 at 17:30hrs at which time HostMonitor will resume monitoring automatically.
Resume
Also you may resume paused test item(s) manually.
Note: You may pause entire monitoring (all test items) using main menu "Monitoring -> Pause".

Set planned pause
Allows you to schedule test items to be paused at sometime in the future. For example you may select set of test items and tell HostMonitor to pause execution of these items next Sunday between 01:00AM and 03:00AM. Option available thru main menu "Test" -> "Set planned pause".
Tests scheduled for pause
Opens dialog window that shows all items scheduled to be paused (not items that are paused right now). Using this dialog windows you may check "pause schedule" for each item, sort the list using different sort orders, also you may reschedule time for selected items or repeal pause for the items. Option available thru main menu "Test" -> "Tests planned for pause".

Regarding the scheduling of breaks, is it possible to import/export a list of external breaks from an external file?

Could you please explain?
Do you have some text list of test items with specified pause interval for each test item and you want to apply pause for each item?
There is no such option..

If you have some script that generates such list, you may modify it and create HMS Script file using PauseTest or PauseTestByID commans. E.g.
PauseTestByID 5120 10 "pause for 10 min"
PauseTestByID 5122 15 "pause for 15 min"
PauseTestByID 5125 20 "pause for 20 min"
Then you may execute script manually or using HM Script action (started by schedule or triggered by some test item)
