A maintenance window is a repeating window during which automatic maintenance is permitted.
Maintenance windows give fine-grained control over when Last9 can perform scheduled software upgrades on your Levitate clusters. For example, you can prevent maintenance from happening before a critical event or make sure it happens on your weekdays instead of weekends.
A maintenance window can be configured for each cluster from the cluster's settings tab.
- Maintenance windows will be considered for software upgrades, including deployment operations.
- The maintenance operation will run for a maximum of an hour.
- Critical security patches and bug fixes will be rolled out immediately without waiting for a maintenance window.
