The maintenance can be applied to an agent or a node. It will deactivate the alerts (tickets, e-mails, text(SMS)) for a predetermined period of time.

4- Locally putting an agent under maintenance

When you intervene on a server or a workstation the maintenance state might have not been declared in advance. In this situation the interventions made on the server/workstation will set off alerts that are unnecessary.
In order to fix this issue it is possible to put the agent under maintenance directly on the server/workstation using a simple line of code.
Open the command interpreter "CMD.exe" and type the following command:

RG_Supervision.exe --disable-alerts --timeout 90

This command will deactivate the alerts for this agent for a period of time of 90 minutes (60min is the default value if the timeout is not mentionned).

5- How to see if an agent is under maintenance

The maintenance page of a node or an agent will display the planned ending time of the maintenance if there is one.
You can also see if an agent is under maintenance by going to the overview page where you will see a cone logo as follow:
