Reduce Flood of SAM Hardware Events

I really like many of the new SAM Hardware Monitor features that were recently added. My main frustration though is the overwhelming number of events that are generated in my event list. Ocassionally, I have servers that for whatever reason go into "Undefined". After the next SAM polling cycle, all of the individual Hardware Components show "UP" again. This is great, but I don't need to see an UP for every single component. If I have more than one server reboot, for example monthly patching, I get hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of SAM Hardware UP events. This is complete overkill. As far as I can tell, there is no way to disable this. I usually have to go in and manually clear all these events because people start getting excited wondering why all these hardware monitors are coming UP.
