Checkmk Tutorials Episode 13: Scheduling downtimes

Mathias explains how to consider maintenance times in Checkmk. Scheduling downtimes avoids that your monitoring sends false alarms during a maintenance window. Use Checkmk to also inform affected users about the maintenance. Watch it on YouTube with English subtitles
