If you have Scheduled Maintenance on your systems, you can use the Maintenance Mode Feature to enable the Maintenance Mode on your monitored systems at that time.

Maintenance Mode is an overall switch for notifications. When Maintenance Mode is enabled, all notifications modules are disabled thus decreasing the load Pulseway inflicts on the computer so that the maintenance process will be a smooth one.

The Maintenance Mode schedule can be configured in the Web App Policy in the "Server Admin > Policies > Other Settings > Maintenance Schedule" section. First, the "Enable" radio button needs to be turned on. Once done, the Maintenance mode scheduling chart is open to editing.

You can choose the days of the week and the hours during which the systems automatically go into Maintenance Mode. To schedule maintenance for a specific Monday at 10 PM you need to click on the white block on the “Monday” row and the “20” column. If your Maintenance happens Saturday and Sunday from 12 AM to 3 AM your schedule should look like this:

To choose an hour of a day on the chart, simply click on the corresponding grid. To undo the action, simply click again on the same grid.

Maintenance Mode can also be enabled on the individual systems through the Pulseway Agent. However, the Web App Policy settings (if applied to the same machine) will always take precedence over the individual agent settings.

Also, Policies are naturally more convenient for applying such monitoring rules, as they can be applied to multiple machines simultaneously.

On the left panel of the Pulseway Agent, there is an option to Start / End Maintenance Mode.

On the Agent, the Maintenance Schedule can be configured in the "Settings > Maintenance Schedule" section.
