The calendar shows the blackout schedule for the monitor. Blackouts are dates and time when the monitor either does not run, or runs but does not send alerts. Blackout can be one-time or weekly.

To add a new blackout, click Schedule Monitor Blackout.
To edit an existing blackout, click it on the calendar.
