Is there a way so that PRTG starts to pause automatic Sensors on a specific Time?

Hello MatzeK,
thanks for your KB porting.

Please find all relevant information regarding schedules under the links below:

There are two primary use cases for schedules:

  1. The usage on notifications - here the schedules are entered in the settings of the notification templates. The notification is then paused at the defined times, but the monitoring itself remains active.
  2. The usage on probes/groups/devices - in this case the complete monitoring, i.e. the respective subordinated sensors, is paused during the specified time. The notifications remain active, but do not send anything, since no errors occur in the pause state.

Best regards,
Sven Roggenhofer [Paessler Technical Support]
