Use the Time of day filter to include messages sent during specific times. For example, you can use this filter to stop processing messages sent during test or maintenance periods. Only messages sent during the specified times trigger actions in the associated rule.

  1. From the Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, choose File > Setup.
  2. Add a new rule, or locate an existing rule.
  3. Right-click the Filters node below the rule, and choose Add Filter.
  4. Replace the default name with a descriptive name. (The name does not have to be unique.)
  5. In the Field menu, select Time of day.

  6. Select one or more cells to specify the times to include:

    • Click and drag to select a block of cells.
    • Click a heading to select an entire column or row.
    • Click and drag across headings to select multiple columns or rows.

    To exclude a time period, select that time period and click Inverse.

    Selected cells are highlighted.
