If you expect system downtime, you can set Security Desk to maintenance mode so that the health statistics of the application are not affected.
Unexpected downtime, the time that an application is unavailable excluding planned maintenance, negatively affects the health statistics for that application. Any downtime while Security Desk is in maintenance mode is considered expected downtime, and is not used to calculate application availability.
What you should know
NOTE: Setting Security Desk to maintenance mode does not stop the health events; however, it reports all health events as information only.
- In Config Tool, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
- Select the Health Monitor role, and then click the Properties tab.
- Set Security Desk maintenance mode to ON, and click Apply.
