WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Schedule recommendations

Updated: 10-19-2016

Active and predictive recommendations may include actions best completed after business hours or off peak times. When reviewing and resolving a recommendation, you can schedule the action for later execution.

Schedule a single recommendation

  1. On the All Recommendations page, select a recommendation you want to apply.
  2. Review the recommendation.
  3. Check the statistics for an overview of resource utilization over time.

    For predictive recommendations, the statistics also contain information about the predicted resource utilization in the future.

  4. Check the details of the steps how the action will be executed. If the VM does not support live changes, applying a recommended action should involve shutting the VM down, and then starting it again. Select Power off the VM to turn the VM off while the recommended action is executed and have it turned on again when the action is finished.
  5. Select Schedule Recommendation. Select a date and time.

  6. Click Apply this recommendation.

The scheduled recommendations are listed under the Scheduled tab of the All Recommendations page.
