Scheduled downtime




we monitor a large number of servers but some of these servers are scheduled to be rebooted during the night. Is there a way of adding a list of server to an exception group for a specific set of time?

You can use schedules to pause your monitoring for a certain time. Please see manual section Schedules Concept for more details.

A good practice is to add all objects you want to pause into one group and set up a schedule for this group, inheriting this setting to all objects in this group.
