Question about "Disable Alerting" setting

does anyone have any insight in to what “Disable Alerting” does for alerts?

we had a maintenance window to reboot the gateway before our Libre server, and so instead of setting a maintnence window for each device, I set Disable Alerting to true. after the maintence was over, I set Disable Alerting to false, but I got every notification that would have been sent anyway. It’s as if all I did was postpone the alerts until they were enabled again

I think I found my answer. Looks like all processed alerts are stored in librenms.alerts, including if a notification has been sent or not (“alerted”). When I turned off “disable alerting”, I assume the pollers saw all those alerts that didn’t have a sent alert, and processed notifications for each.
