To avoid receiving unnecessary threshold or device alarm notifications when moving devices, or if a known situation will result in conditions exceeding set thresholds, you can pause threshold alarming on one or more Locations, or device alarming on a single device or all devices connected to a host.

Paused alarms reactivate automatically after 24 hours, if not resumed manually before that time. Data collection continues during a pause period at all linked Locations.

You require Configure Alarms permission for the Locations you want to pause. Only members of the Administrators group can pause host alarms.

How is this different from disabling an alarm?

Threshold and device alarms remain disabled until manually set back to enabled.
