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.
