mom: why do agents still send alerts in maintenance mode?

the mom product team was kind enough to (finally) remove all mystery in this blog post regarding why agents continue to send alerts even after you’ve flagged it for maintenance. In summary:

  • management server and database updated immediately
  • server-side responses stop
  • suspended agent initiates configuration update cycle
  • agent receives update that it is in maintenance mode

same process is true when an agent is taken out of maintenance mode.
