"Maintenance Exporter" is a prometheus exporter that exports a metric to signal wether or not a maintenance window is active. This metric can then be used in alerting rules to suppress alerting during the maintenance window.


If the config.yaml.sample is used, the following metrics would be produced:

> curl -s http://localhost:9099/metrics 
maintenance_active{name="weekend"} 0
maintenance_active{service="UUID as a service",service_level="staging",name="staging restore",team="haxx0rz"} 0
maintenance_active{service_level="development",name="testy mctestface"} 1
