In some circumstances you may no longer wish to apply a rule against a specific server or group of servers and in other circumstances you may want to suspend a rule for a short length of time. With this in mind, it is possible to disable or unschedule a rule.
To disable or unschedule an advisor choose the
Schedule screen of the
Rules may be disabled or unscheduled using the buttons on the
upper or lower left of the screen. You may also change a rule by
unschedule hyperlink to the right of a rule.
The buttons are particularly useful when you are altering more
than one rule.
To no longer run a rule against a specific server, expand the
advisor group and the specific rule by clicking the
+ button. You may then click the
unschedule button. When the dialog window
opens, choose the unschedule button and
that rule will no longer be applied. If you wish to back out of
the operation choose cancel. If, at a later
date, you wish to institute this rule again, you may do so from
Add to Schedule page.
If you want to suspend a rule temporarily, use the
disable button and follow the same process
you would for unscheduling. Once a rule is disabled the link under
the status column changes to red and reads
disabled. When a rule is disabled, data is no
longer collected for that rule. A disabled rule is easily
re-enabled by clicking the
disabled link or by
using the enable button.
Multiple rules may be altered for one or more servers by selecting the appropriate checkbox and then clicking the unschedule, enable, or disable button.
Rules associated with the heat chart cannot be disabled or unscheduled as they are required by MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
