automated pause



On the weekends we have a backup process that runs to a remote site. during this process the circuit is heavily utilized and therefore PRGT monitoring sends out notification emails all weekend. During the process i could get up to 30 emails. So I've started logging into PRGT and pausing the monitoring of the devices involved for a day or two.

Has anyone, or is there a way i can automate the device pausing?
