Learn how to exclude maintenance period data from the totals in a graph or table report by creating a maintenance period, assigning devices to it using names or a filter, and associating it with a report. As a result, data for devices in planned maintenance periods does not affect the report totals.

This feature is implemented by the M&R Maintenance Manager module. The Maintenance Manager replaces the Outage Manager and Outage Detector that existed in previous M&R releases. In an upgrade situation, outages that were defined by the older Outage Manager are honored by Maintenance Manager.

Note: The previous Outage Detector feature that permitted a user to view and edit a list of maintenance periods is not supported by Maintenance Manager.
