4.3 Disabling and Unscheduling Rules

You can change a rule so that it no longer applies to a specific server or group of servers, or suspend a rule for a period of time.

To disable or unschedule an advisor, choose the Current Schedule screen of the Advisors tab.


Advisors, even those that are unscheduled or disabled, still run during discovery mode when MySQL Enterprise Monitor starts, and when the dashboard runs the inventory process.

You can disable or unschedule one or more rules using the buttons on the upper or lower left of the screen. You can also change one rule at a time by clicking the enabled or unschedule hyperlink to the right of a rule.

To no longer run a rule against a specific server, expand the advisor group and the specific rule by clicking the + button and then the unschedule button. In the dialog window that opens, click the unschedule button. To back out of the operation, choose cancel. To institute this rule again, use the Add to Schedule page.

To suspend a rule temporarily, use the disable button and follow the same process as for unscheduling. Once a rule is disabled, the link under the status column changes to red and reads disabled. When a rule is disabled, data is no longer collected for that rule. To re-enable a disabled rule, click the disabled link or the enable button.

To alter multiple rules for one or more servers, select the appropriate checkbox and clicking the unschedule, enable, or disable button.


Rules associated with the heat chart cannot be disabled or unscheduled, as they are required by MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
