8.5. Disabling a Monitor Operation

The easiest way to stop a recurring monitor is to delete it. However, there can be times when you only want to disable it temporarily. In such cases, add enabled="false" to the operation’s definition with the pcs resource update command. When you want to reinstate the monitoring operation, set enabled="true" to the operation's definition.
When you update a resource's operation with the pcs resource update command, any options you do not specifically call out are reset to their default values. For example, if you have configured a monitoring operation with a custom timeout value of 600, running the following commands will reset the timeout value to the default value of 20 (or whatever you have set the default value to with the pcs resource ops default command).
# pcs resource update resourceXZY op monitor enabled=false
# pcs resource update resourceXZY op monitor enabled=true
In order to maintain the original value of 600 for this option, when you reinstate the monitoring operation you must specify that value, as in the following example.
# pcs resource update resourceXZY op monitor timeout=600 enabled=true
