I’ve recently installed the latest Orion MP from Solarwinds and I’ve noticed a ton of “Orion Response Time Alert” alerts as well as others that happen predominantly during backup hours. Is there a way to supress events for this rule (as well as others) to reduce the noise? I really don’t want to have to put everything in maintenance mode throughout the entire night every night as I’d like to know if critical services really are having issues. I just don’t need hundreds of these warnings killing my views.
Have SCOM monitor your critical services via synthetic transactions and only look at SolarWinds data if the synthetic transactions shows a slow response time or fails.
Thanks Wilson. I’d rather not reinvent monitoring though by having to create new transactions. I like what the MP is giving me but just want to have them go silent during the backup window.
Yes; but you need to edit the code. I’ve given a very brief example here of building a powershelgl monitor with business hours and match count.

There are a number of ways to do it and the above is just my personal preference. It allows monitors to go unhealthy –> healthy out of hours but not healthy –> unhealthy by putting a scheduler filter on the unhealthy workflow.
If you didn’t want the monitor to run at all then you could put the filter on the underlying data source.
