Schedule Downtime for a Resource Group

Available only in vFabric Hyperic

Schedule Downtime

The Schedule Downtime page, available from the Tools menu when a resource, or a resource group is selected, allows you to schedule a downtime period, during which alerts for the resource(s). You define a period of time - a start and end date and time. At the start of the downtime period, currently active alert definitions for resources in the group are disabled. At the end of the period, those alert definitions are re-enabled.

Only a Hyperic user with the Super User role may schedule downtime.

To schedule or reschedule maintenance:

  1. Navigate to the individual resource (a platform, server, or service) or the resource group for which you wish to schedule downtime.

  2. Choose Schedule Downtime from the Tools menu.

    • The Schedule Downtime page appears.
