Time Based Rules

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, it's not good to be notified. Here's one example from my system:

The SMS_EXECUTIVE service (part of System Center Configuration Manager 2007) stops at 3AM every morning for a backup to occur, and restarts when the backup is finished. When the service stops, PC Monitor logs it, and every morning I have to dismiss the event.

But it's really "noise" that I don't need to mess with. But worse, if SMS_EXECUTIVE crashes at 3:10AM, I won't know it because the 3AM notification will stop further notifications.

What I'd like to do is have a rule like this:

"If Time = 3:00-3:01 AM, don't notify on SMS_EXECUTIVE shutdown."

That's the way I read the OP's request, too; maybe he meant something different.

You will be able to do this using the "Maintenance Mode" feature - it will allow you to set date/time intervals while the computer is in maintenance mode meaning no notifications will be sent while in that mode.

I'm using the regular version and for testing the RC4 candidate version of the software. I cannot find a "Maintenance Mode" feature. Can you please tell me where to find this interesting feature.

Judging from the Roadmap post the Maintenance Mode is still under development. It would help if the BETA and RC releases would include a changelog attached..

Edit: This feature has been implemented into PC Monitor and can be found in the Manager application.
