Stop monitoring resources

You stop monitoring resources when you do not want the Monitor to collect metrics. For example, you want to stop monitoring when you know that the resource will be unavailable; otherwise, you receive alerts until the resource is available. Except for the default Monitor resource, you can stop monitoring any resource at any time.

When you stop monitoring a resource, the Monitor:

  • Stops collecting metrics for the resource.

  • Stops issuing alerts for the resource.

There are two ways to stop monitoring a resource:

  • Schedule a regular, repeating, blackout period   This method is a good choice when the following conditions apply:

    • You must repeatedly stop monitoring the resource. For example, you perform regular maintenance at the end of each month.

    • You know in advance how long the resource is unavailable. For example, you know that your regular maintenance takes four hours.

    • You need monitoring to automatically restart. When a blackout completes, the Monitor attempts to reconnect to the resource and to continue collecting data.

    To use this method, you configure blackouts to make the Monitor automatically stop monitoring at specified times.

  • Manually stop monitoring   This method is a good choice when the following conditions are met:

    • You need to stop monitoring for infrequent or one-time tasks. For example, you need to stop monitoring because the computer that the resource is running on needs to be taken off-line for special maintenance.

    • You are available to restart the monitoring afterward. When a resource has been stopped manually, the Monitor waits for you to restart monitoring.

To permanently stop monitoring a resource, you can remove it from the Monitor.
