To stop alerting for a period of time, create an alert blackout. For example, you can create an alert blackout to suppress alerts during a maintenance window.

  1. Click Alerts, and then click the Alert Blackouts tab.
  2. Specify whether you want to create a blackout for an alert, a database instance, or an alert group.
  3. Select the alert, database instance, or alert group, and then click Add Blackout.


  4. Specify the beginning and end of the blackout period. Times are based on a 24-hour clock.
  5. If the blackout period is for an alert, select All Databases or specify the database instances that this alert should not run on.

    If the blackout period is for a database instance, select All Alerts or specify the alerts that should not run.


  6. Click Create Blackout.

The blackout is effective each week on the specified day and time until it is deleted.
