Silencing Scout during maintenance

December 09 Bullet_white By Derek Bullet_white Posted in Features Bullet_white Comments Comments

While performing infrastructure maintenance, Scout suddenly fires emails to your team members telling them that MySQL, Redis, HAProxy, etc. are down. They are, but it’s planned. You’re forced to respond to a barrage of emails, SMS messages, Skype messages, and guttural screams telling everyone that things are fine. We’ve added a Disable notifications for everyone option to Scout that should suppress these panic attacks:

When selected, all notification emails and SMS messages will not be sent (they’ll still appear in the Scout UI). Once maintenance is complete, simply unselect the checkbox.

Get notified of new posts.

Once a month, we'll deliver a finely-curated selection of optimization tips to your inbox.
