We've got a few 'busy' hosts that use 100% cpu and 95% ram more or less every day for a couple of hours. Talking to the maintainers of the host, fixing this is in the too-hard basket, and they don't really care about the cpu/ram usage. We'd still like to monitor/graph it, but how can we exclude these service notifications on these specific hosts? My thoughts were maybe to have a keyword like "not-cpu" and exclude them from notifications, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do notifications based on keyword exclusion.
Also sticky acknowledgements don't work as the server will go back to green once it has finished what it is doing each day.
