Planned Downtime Mode for all devices in Airwave

All,

 

I'm trying to schedule a planned downtime every Monday morning from 5am to 7am (when our buildings do a generator test).  Is there a way to do this so that I don't get alerted when the devices go down for this period of time?

 

We are using Airwave version 7.7.5.

 

Thanks in advance!

You can set this up  by following the screebshot below.

once you hit Save, you can schedule it based on your requirements.

However you will have to end it manually.

Hmm... ending manually stinks... too bad you can't just set a 2 hour period of no monitoring, or maybe suspend the trigger which fires off the alert e-mails for that time... I'll look into that.  Thanks for the answer!

We can also end this from CLI.

 

#dbc " update ap set planned_maintenance_mode = 0";

 

This single command will end planned maintenance  for all the devices. in case you want it to end it for a single device, use a filter like

 

#dbc" update ap set planned_maintenance_mode = 0 where id = ??";

 

you can also find a way to run this command automatically via a Cron job

While it may not be the most convenient depending on when the planned downtime window occurs, you should be able to schedule an end for the window while the devices are in planned downtime mode.

 

Also worth mentioning, in case it's not intuitive, is that you can establish planned downtime for multiple devices using the 'Modify Devices' option on a list.

Is there any type of Feature Request form that I could submit for this?  Thanks again... I'm going to try and setup the Cron job for all devices this afternoon.
