It is really planned. But as I see it, the DOWNTIME tag is only valid for 
the network test. But the network is up during this period. So the system 
itself is green, but the oracle test is red and is so propagated to the 
summary pages above.

But I cannot really test it, because I cannot shutdown my databases at the 
current time. But we will see what happens tomorrow.
