    Ability to disable basic and advanced alerts temporarily for a node or group of nodes

    MrSampsonite

      There should be the ability to select a single node or collection of nodes and mark them not to trigger alerts indefinitely or for a period of time and then later turn them back on. This is all without stopping monitoring, just the alerts.

       

      Right now someone suggested adding a custom property to every node and then in every alert we create test to make sure the node has a certain value for that property. Seems like a hack job for something that should be built in (no offense to the person suggesting this).

          I think that this is what the "Unmanage" facility/status is for. From what I understand you can do this manually or there is a scheduler if you want to do it based on time.

          Unfortunately, the Unmanage thing is not really well defined anywhere I can easily find in the documentation; but I have 2 unmanaged nodes which I don't get alerts on but which are still being polled.

          Perhaps someone from SW Staff can confirm or correct this; and perhaps see about having the documentation on this improved (or point out the correct location for the information!)
