Enabling and Disabling Monitors and Alerts

You can enable and disable monitors at any time. Disabled monitors do not run, and appear in gray on the monitor list. You can also turn off alerts for a monitor, so that the monitor continues running, but does not send notifications.

Tip: To disable monitoring or alerting temporarily, you can schedule a monitor blackout instead.

Note: You need to be an Admin or Co-Admin user to change the monitoring settings.
