Pausing Uptime Checks

Once you've created your uptime checks, you have the option to pause them.

This is particularly useful for when you know the page you're monitoring will flip/flop between being online and offline while recovering from maintenance.

How to pause your uptime checks#

  1. Head to the Uptime checks dashboard, and click on the monitor you want to pause

Things to be aware of#

  • Paused uptime checks continue to count towards your plan's limit
  • Paused uptime checks will not alert you when your page goes offline (as by definition, they are not running)
  • Pausing an uptime check with an active incident will not end the incident - when you resume the uptime check and the page comes back online, OnlineOrNot will still send you a notification
