OPMS Maintenance

OPMS Maintenance
cacm82
You can place an On-Premise Monitoring Station in the maintenance state. In maintenance state ASM does not schedule any checks on monitoring stations. The maintenance state prevents a flood of 'checking station not available' error messages in the log. The maintenance state ensures that the maintenance of the machine does not interfere with running checks. In the maintenance state, the software on the machine remains running, including the tunnel client. Maintenance mode only notifies ASM that the OPMS is not available. The maintenance mode does not change the OPMS host machine.
If you have multiple OPMS connected through one tunnel client which is stopped, then all stations that are connected using this tunnel client are affected.
The temporary stop disconnects all OPMSs that are reached over the tunnel client running on the machine. If the monitoring station system maintenance causes it to disconnect from the tunnel server (stopping the tunnel client, disconnecting network) or the 
nginx
 service is stopped, or the system is shut down, all assets from that station (waterfalls, screenshots etc.) become inaccessible.
Put the OPMS in the maintenance state to upgrade hardware or supporting software on the OPMS host machine.
