Maintenance Schedule

The Maintenance Schedule feature allows users to temporarily pause monitoring on selected servers and checks. This is useful when a user wants to perform technical tasks such as updating the operating system or applying fixes, and they do not want to receive reports of any downtime during that time. Using Maintenance Schedules users can prevent false positive reports of downtime and ensure that their monitoring results are accurate and relevant.

  • Start: Set a start date and time for beginning the maintenance window. Please make sure you provide correct input, based on your timezone.
