Scheduling Service or Endpoint Downtime

If you need to shut down a service without affecting the state of your SLAs, you should schedule a downtime for the service before shutting it down. Instrument measurements continue to be collected and displayed during scheduled downtimes, but these measurements are not used for SLA evaluations.

In order to schedule downtime of a service, you must first create a downtime schedule and then add the schedule to each of the service's endpoints.

This section also explains how to view a schedule, how to remove a schedule from and endpoint, and how to delete a downtime schedule from all endpoints.

To Create a Downtime Schedule

  1. Choose Create > Schedule to open the Create Schedule tool.

  2. Give your schedule a descriptive name.

  3. Set the Schedule Type to Custom.

  4. Click the first drop list and choose the recurrence frequency for the downtime. For example, the following schedule chooses a weekly downtime, specifies the day, the starting time, the duration of the down period, and the starting date.
