Custom Wake-on-LAN Action

Is there a certain area or perl scripts that can be modified to fine tune Wake-on-LAN functionality?

I probably have a weird use case that would like to get to work with the UI's Wake-on-LAN button.
  • 3 Proxmox hosts named 'srv' 'lab1' and 'lab2'
  • srv is physically connected to router via ethernet
  • lab1 and lab2 are wirelessly connected to router
  • lab1 and lab2 are connected together via ethernet (private vmbr1 network)
  • lab1 can turn on lab2 with the following command - specifying broadcast address assigned to vmbr1 network.
# wakeonlan -i a4:bb:6d:65:68:73
Sending magic packet to with a4:bb:6d:65:68:7

Any tips on possible places to play around with to modify pvenode/GUI functionality, or is there something obvious I'm missing?
