Is there a way to filter services on the ntservices probe using wild card?

Issue:
- Based on monitoring requirements we need to exclude specific Windows services from being monitored. Use of wildcarding would be very useful.
Environment:
- Windows 2016 OS environment
- ntservices v3.40
Cause:
- Randomly generated service names in Windows 2016
Resolution:
Currently, the ntservices probe does not have a setting to exclude certain services/exclude services using wildcarding.

If necessary, a preprocessing rule can be created to exclude the alarms based on the service name but if you are publishing qos it would still be collected.

An enhancement request has previously been raised for this behavior which appears to be specific to Windows 2016 OS.
