PRTG Manual: Scheduling

With the help of schedules you can pause the monitoring of certain objects automatically for a certain time, for example, on Sundays between 4 and 8 a.m. A paused sensor will not collect monitoring data, will not change its status, and will not trigger any notifications. You can also pause monitoring for planned system maintenance time spans to avoid false alarms. You can apply different schedules to every object. Schedules are also used for reports and notifications.
