Pausing Alerts during daily maintenance actions



How can I pause disk space alerts during nightly backups when space gets filled temporarily?

Maintenance window option is for one-time only in settings. I need to pause every day from 5:00 to 6:30am this space alert.

Hello there,

Thanks for your inquiry, we appreciate your contact regarding the matter!

For a weekly pause of certain objects you can use the schedules. Please navigate to "Setup | Account Settings | Schedules" and create your own schedule with the needed time spans (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/scheduling).

To set this schedule up for all disk space Sensors please proceed with our Multi-Edit-Feature:
1. "Sensors | By Type | (choose sensor type; e.g.: WMI Free Disk Space (Multi Disk) Sensors)"
2. Mark all displayed sensors with the box on the top right.
3. Click on "Settings" on the blue bar on the right.
4. Scroll down to "Inherit Schedules, Dependencies, and Maintenance Window", mark "Schedule" and choose the corresponding schedule.

For more information about multi edit follow this link.

Kind regards,
Birk Guttmann, Tech Support Team
