Monitoring and Alerting blackout schedules can be viewed from the Monitor Overview screen.
- Click on the monitor’s name:
- The Monitor modal will display the active Monitoring and Alerting blackout schedules for the next 7 days, starting with the current day (today). All timings are shown in local time based on the time zone selected for the portal account:
As shown in the screenshot above, Alerting will be disabled on Saturday at 20:58 and re-enabled at 23:01, while Monitoring will be disabled on Sunday at 10:58 and re-enabled at 13:01.
Please note, in this example we are assuming a blackout window with start times on the hour. It is a good illustration of how such times are likely to have been brought forward by a couple of minutes. This helps to ensure that any scheduled tests have completed before the requested window starts.
- When there are no active Monitoring and Alerting blackout schedules, the Monitor modal will display the message 'There are currently no blackouts scheduled'.:
