Guides - Temporarily Disable Service Monitoring

Downtime is expensive and puts your company’s reputation at risk. Linode Managed is an incident response service designed to help businesses cut out costly downtime. Our highly experienced Managed Service team is here around the clock to help.

Service monitoring can be temporarily disabled:

Note
Linode Managed continuously monitors your services for availability. If you are going to perform scheduled maintenance on a service that temporarily makes it unavailable, you will receive a support ticket from Linode when they are alerted of the service’s outage. You can disable monitoring for that service during the maintenance to avoid receiving these reports.
  1. Log into the Linode Cloud Manager.

  2. Click the Managed link in the sidebar.

  3. Select the Monitors tab. A table which lists your monitored services will appear below the tab.

  4. Find the service that you want to temporarily disable and click on the corresponding more options ellipsis. Select the Disable option from the menu that appears.

    Disable Monitoring for a Service

The service is now temporarily disabled. Linode Managed won’t resume monitoring this service until you reenable monitoring, as described in the next section.
