|Scheduled Downtime and Nagios|
|Server - Nagios|
When a server or device is being worked on and you need to schedule downtime so Nagios does not notify administrators that can be performed at the web interface. When you select the host or service that will be down you have an option to schedule downtime. When downtime is scheduled Nagios will place a comment in the web interface in order to communicate the fact to all administrators who access the web interface.
There are two types of downtime. Fixed downtime allows for and exact start and end time when the host or service will be unavailable. Flexible downtime allows for a start time but an open ended startup time as the exact time cannot be determined based on the nature of the situation.
