Exclude Multiple Jobs in Alarm Rules

Post by bg.ranken »

So I'm trying to exclude jobs from the "Suspicious incremental backup size" alarm. In the rules section there is a field for excluding jobs, however I've only been successful adding a single job. When typing the job it does show a drop down, but I want to do multiple jobs. I tried separating with a few common delimiters like commas or semicolons, but none of them seem to work.

How would you exclude multiple jobs from this alarm?

Also a side question, is there any way to exclude only specific VMs from this alarm?

Hi Randall,

Currently, you can only specify a single mask for this particular alarm and all jobs that fall under the selection will not cause the alarm to trigger. We'll try to improve it in future versions.

No, currently there is no way to exclude particular VMs from this alarm.

Thanks

What do you mean a single mask?

It's a simple exclusion mask. E.g. if you specify "A*" all jobs having "A" in the beginning of their names will not cause the alarm to trigger, but in this particular alarm rule, you can only specify a single mask, not multiple.

Definitely a +1 here for excluding specific VMs. Most of our jobs are fairly large and excluding all VMs is a bad idea, but getting spammed for a VM I know has high variability makes me want to turn the alarm off completely.

I just wanted to upvote this.

Any update on when/if this feature will be available?
