Disable a probe during server or device maintenance. Temporarily stop the monitoring process while performing system maintenance on a server or devices to prevent reporting anomalies. This retains the specified probe details settings when you enable the probe again.

This procedure can only be done at the Customer or Site-level.

  1. Click Administration > Probes.
  2. Select the check box next to the probe that you want to disable.
  3. Select Disable from the State drop-down list box.

The probe is disabled and the Monitoring Status column changes to Disabled.

To enable the probe again, repeat the above steps above and select Enable from the State drop-down list box.
