About Device Property Polling

Polling is the term used for monitoring discovered devices in WhatsUp Gold. The Polling dialog lets you configure polling options and/or schedule maintenance times for the selected device.

Device Properties Polling dialog



Use this section of the dialog to manually set the device Maintenance state, or schedule the maintenance state for a certain time period. Any device placed in Maintenance mode will not be polled, but it remains in the device list with an identifying icon. By default, the maintenance state is represented by an orange background color.
