This section is common to all the editions of IT360 - Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition (Probes only) and MSP Edition (Probes only).
Maintenance of network devices forms an integral part of network administration. You may want to perform a maintenance of specific device types at specific intervals. If such devices are removed from the network, or rebooted, then you will see alarms indicating that the device, or the applications in the device are unavailable. Since the devices are not available when polled for status during the maintenance period, unnecessary alarms are fired. To prevent the devices from being monitored for status during maintenance, you can schedule a maintenance task for such devices.
Navigate to 'Admin --> Networks --> Downtime Scheduler'.
Click on New Schedule.
Name: Configure a name for the schedule.
Description: Describe the schedule briefly.
Status: You can enable/disable the schedule by selecting the appropriate radio button. Select the Status as Enabled, if you want the scheduled task to take effect immediately. Else select Disabled, so that you can enable it when required.
Downtime Frequency: Select the frequency at which you would like to run this schedule. It can be Once, Every Day, Every Week, or Every Month. Also, select the time (From and To, in hours) for the schedule.
If it is a schedule to be executed Every Day, then specify the date from which the task must be scheduled.
If it is a schedule to be executed Every Month, you need to choose it to be either Date wise (Enter From and To details, in hours), or Day wise (Select the count and the Day, followed by the From and To details, in hours)
