Checks view filtered for Up, Down, and Paused checks
A check can be in one of four different states:
- Up - Check state is reported as OK and Uptime.com has not issued an alert.
- Down - Check state is reported as CRITICAL. Uptime.com has issued an alert.
- Paused - Check is not actively monitoring, collecting metrics, or issuing alerts.
- Maintenance - Check is in maintenance state. Click here to learn more about maintenance states.
Pause a check from Monitoring > Checks. Click the box next to the check you wish to pause, and select the pause icon.
If you would like to pause checks in bulk, tick the box next to the Name title for all checks to be paused, then select the pause icon from the generated bulk menu.
It is also possible to filter your view to include checks in various states:
Pausing a Group Check
A Group Check nests individual checks, and pausing this check type applies differently than normal check types. Because a Group Check functions similarly to an individual check, pausing a Group check pauses only the Group check and not the checks nested within.
Delete a check from Monitoring > Checks. Tick the box next to the check you wish to delete, then select the delete icon.,
To delete checks in bulk, tick the box next to the Name title, then select the delete icon from the generated bulk menu.
Please Note: Deleted checks and associated alerts will be non-recoverable after 30 days.
Deleting Checks in a Group Check
A Group Check nests individual checks, and deletion of check applies differently to this check type.
A Group Check in this sense can be considered like an individual check. Deleting a Group check does not delete any checks nested within it. However, deleting an individual check from within a Group check does remove that check from your account.
Please note: If a deleted check was configured as the Group Check’s response time calculation source, then the response time graph will remain empty until a new Response Time Calculation mode or check source is selected. For more information on these settings, see the individual entries in Check Field Explanations.
