PRTG Maintenance Windows Specification




I need to define specific maintenance windows in advance for a specific time-frame. The schedule functionality is insufficient for that. When you could provide this very meaningful feature?

Best regards, Markus

This is something that has been requested but not often enough for us to have implemented this. If others vote up this post, this is something that we would consider. I have added the tag wishlist to this post so that it shows up as a feature request.

It MIGHT solve your issue.

I would be interested in this function being more flexible. I have several servers that back up every day and hence go offline for about 10 minutes which invokes prtg messages. I would like to be able to setup a daily maintenance window, for example from 4:00 - 4:30 whereby the messages from sensors being down are surpressed during that window.

Hi there,

definitely a necessary feature. I have some customers where, due to various V-DSL and monitored VPN lines, the connection will be broken every single night from roundabouts 2am to 3-30am. Every morning, the first that I have to do is trash my mailbox.

Our ticketing system is set up to automatically trash all PRTG notifications and called webhooks from that customer because otherwise you get a fit every morning, but that's really not ideal.

Am I getting this right? There is no option whatsoever in PRTG to set up a daily window for "don't bother sending tons of mails between 2 and 3 o'clock, we know their internet connections will be down at some point and come back up at another point"? How basic is that feature? (doh)

And how hard can it be to add the flag "daily" onto the one time maintenance window settings per probe, that already exists? I must have overseen where I can set this up somewhere, haven't I?

cheers Patrick
