How do I upgrade to El Capitan when running crashplan

I use Crashplan to backup my Mac and my external drive (where all my photos and files are stored) onto another external drive as well as Crashplan central (the cloud). So I wanted to know if there are any requirements necessary, or a procedure I need to follow if I want to upgrade from OSX Mavericks to OSX El Capitan? Such as, whether I need to completely disable the crashplan app (once it's done with it's current backup), or if simply pausing the app will work. I also permanently leave the backup drives attached to the Mac, and the external drive I use for transferring work between home and college is connected now too. Do I need to eject all external drives before I start an upgrade?
