In some cases you want to stop file notifications for a while, for example during storage maintenance, to avoid notification flooding. To do this, you need to disable the storage supervisor, which is the service that automatically monitors your file systems and notifies you when something has been changed.

Disable the storage supervisor by entering the following PUT command;

PUT /vidispine-service/service/StorageSupervisorServlet/disable

Don't forget to enable the storage supervisor again after you are finished.
