In Zabbix, it is possible to create a maintenance period for the times we need to do some maintenance on our servers. It would be awkward to get a bunch of notifications when we know that our servers are down for a certain period of time. In Zabbix we can split maintenance periods in two major types, maintenance with and without data collection.
For this recipe, we need our Zabbix server with administrator rights. We also need at least one host set up and added in our Zabbix configuration. We will make use of this host to show you how to add a host or a group in maintenance period.
