Mongoengine seems to cache --move-hosts actions until quads-server bounced #234

We still have a strange behavior in that after entering scheduling actions --move-hosts show nothing to do but when quads-server is bounced it picks up the results.

This we thought was the fix but it still occurs, we should probably revert this until we can figure out where this is getting cached:


For now, a mitigation for this is to simply issue systemctl restart quads-server after a new future schedule is entered.

Added config params for no caching
In general, GET responses are cached and, if another request arrives
for the same resource, the caching Tool will return 304 Not Modified
if possible, or serve the cached response otherwise.

Fixes: #234

Not really sure where/how to debug this, it only appears to happen when the --move-hosts functionality is called.

When other data is added/updated into MongoDB via Mongoengine ORM it can be queried immediately and reports back accurately.

We run this functionality out of cron currently, so every 5minutes if systems were set to either be moved somewhere else (or reclaimed) it'll pick up on it.

@radez have you ever seen this kind of behavior?

Final fix for mongoengine cache.
Python’s default arguments are evaluated once when the function is
 defined, not each time the function is called. This means that if
 a default argument like is defined the date will
 not be updated with any subsequent calls to that function.

Fixes: #234
