    QUESTION:

    Can I set warning conditions in monitoring services to limit the number alerts that are generated?


    ANSWER:

    Yes you can, when you starting a monitor service you can specify the following: 

    The number of warnings to be sent for one exception condition, the number of times the exception is detected before the first message, and the number of times the exception is detected between messages

    An example of this would be you can check an IMS region every 60 seconds with a warning only coming out if the region is in error for more than 5 minutes. Setting up this feature in the monitoring services allows for less warnings to be triggered.

    Additionally, you can also set warnings to stop being triggered after 10 warnings are produced. This can be useful in situations where you are aware of the issue and are working to resolve.
