For environments with many users and a fairly heavy monitoring load, setting up a dedicated UI (user interface) instance can often help to improve data collection performance and UI responsiveness.

To configure Uptime Infrastructure Monitor to run only with the user interface and skip all data collection tasks, add the following lines to the /uptime.conf file on the UI-only instanace (change HOSTNAME to the hostname or IP address of the data collector instance).  After saving the file, restart the "up.time Data Collector" service (uptime_core on Linux).



You will also need to set the appropriate DB settings in the uptime.conf file of the UI-only instance (i.e. identical to the uptime.conf file in the data collector).
