Suspend Alarms

The Suspend Alarms page suppresses alarms for specified time periods, including recurring time periods. This allows upgrade and maintenance activity to take place without generating alarms. When alarms are suspended for a machine ID, the agent still collects data, but does not generate corresponding alarms. The list of machine IDs you can select depends on the machine ID / group ID filter.
