nnmtrimincidents.ovpl - Add hostname filter

Describe your idea:
During a review of our system it was determined that we needed to purge incidents from our database.  We have a high number of incidents related to BGP issues on a few hosts and would like the ability to limit the trim to just a particular host name vs. purging across all hosts. 

Why is this important?

There's a need to selectively remove noisey traps for particular devices.  The only current option would be to remove the trap by name which would remove the history for other devices.  BGP in a flapping situation can create 1,000's of incidents and clog the DB. 

If you were designing the solution, how would you do it?
I would add an additional option to the nnmtrimincidents.ovpl called -hostname

@TapanSare there any updates?  It would seem this is something relatively easy to achieve within the tool.  

Is there another way to accomplish the same goal of purging incidents for a specific device?
