Change Check Period
To change when a Host is being actively monitored by the Opsview Monitor software, simply modify the Check Period field for the Host within the Advanced section of the Host Tab, see Configuring a Host: Host tab.
- First, navigate to the Configuration > Hosts page.
- Locate the Host to be modified and edit the Host either by double-clicking on the Host’s row or by clicking on Edit within the contextual menu for the host.
- Within the Advanced section is the Check Period option:
In the above example, we have changed the check period for the Host from the default 24x7 to the newly created ’new_time_period’. Once you have clicked Submit Changes you will also need to go to Configuration > Apply Changes to set this new modification to production so that the Host will only be monitored 8:00 am-5:00 pm, Saturday to Sunday.
