The NTA alerts are all interface utilization triggered so they are not traffic type aware. I think the best way would be to omit that link form the standard alert, create a serparate alert for that link that omits the backup time period.
I agree that would be a good idea. I'm getting this alert for every device in our internet stack in between the server(s) being backed up and the backup server. So I'll have to create a custom alert for every one of those links experiencing this high utilization.
How exactly do you 'omit' a link as you describe? My understanding is that by creating seperate alerts during that time periods for those links (essentially my entire internet stack) if I omit any high utilization alerts during that time period (approximately 12:01 am - 2:00 am) I'll be blind to anything else that occurs during that time frame.
My only other alternative is to just leave it be and just ignore them until a better solution is provided.
Am I understanding correctly?
