The availability computation of hosts and services now allows to use the existing {{Annotations}} in order to reclassify the annotated periods as having been in scheduled downtime or even as not having been in scheduled downtime. That way you can fix your figures in case one has forgotten to enter a scheduled downtime in the past or in the case that scheduled downtimes were just used in order to disable notifications (but the breakdown was in fact real and not scheduled).

Reclassification of downtimes on hosts and services also has an effect on the availability of BI aggregations that are based on these objects.
