Track incidents that occur which are normally ignored due to blackout policy rules.
Alerts when a blackout period has ended and an action would have been triggered by a passive monitor or state change
Configure a Blackout Summary threshold:
Automatically resolve items no longer out of threshold. Select this option if you want Alert Center to automatically resolve items when they return to the value within the threshold limit.
Note: Notification policies are optional for most thresholds. If you do not select a notification policy, no notifications are generated for the threshold, but a dashboard report listing the out of threshold items still appears on the Alert Center Home page.
Note: You cannot configure threshold criteria for the Blackout Summary threshold.
Exclude Devices. Select to build or apply an exclusion list.
Note: Configure the threshold check interval for a longer time than the sampling interval for thresholds relating to trends, such as percent utilization. Configure it for a time the same as (or similar to) the sampling interval when configuring a threshold for a health check.
Tip: Avoid setting the threshold check interval to a very short time. Aggressive intervals can degrade system performance. In general, setting the threshold check interval to less than five minutes is not advised.
