PRTG Manual: Scheduling
With schedules, you can specify active and inactive time spans for monitoring. For example, you can choose to monitor only on Sundays between 16:00 and 20:00. If you use scheduling, PRTG automatically pauses specific objects outside of the scheduled active times. A sensor in the Paused state does not collect monitoring data, does not change its status, and does not trigger any notifications. You can also pause monitoring for planned system maintenance windows to avoid false alarms. You can apply different schedules to every object. PRTG also uses schedules for reports and notifications.
You do not trigger a status change by dependency if you manually pause a master object or if you pause it by schedule. For more information, see the Knowledge Base: Why will dependent objects not automatically pause when I pause the master object?
Schedules are user account specific. To change the predefined schedules or to add your own schedules, see section Schedules.
If you use a cluster with cluster nodes in different time zones, the schedule applies at the local time of each cluster node. For more information, see section Failover Cluster Configuration.
