Setting Device Management States

Updated: 3-9-2017

Monitored devices are regularly polled for operational status. Collected statistics are displayed in the Orion Web Console.

You can temporarily suspend data collection on individual nodes and resume data collection as necessary.

If you suspend data collection for a node, it is suspended automatically for all interfaces and volumes on the selected node.

Suspending data collection is helpful when you need to perform maintenance on a node or its components, such as upgrading firmware, installing new software, or updating security. Suspend polling data for the node while the device is down for maintenance to maintain the accuracy of data and prevent unnecessary alert messages.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Locate the node(s).
  4. Select the nodes, and click Unmanage.
  5. Provide start and end times and dates for your management suspension, and click OK.

    Data for the selected node and monitored resources on the node will be suspended for the specified time period.

Resume data collection for nodes

On Manage Nodes, select the node, and click Remanage.

Information for the selected node, all monitored interfaces and volumes on it will be collected again.
